Archivist Melissa Dollman and NC State professor Dr. Devin Orgeron have discovered and cataloged hours of footage from Century Productions, a Raleigh-based production company that produced- among other things- commercials and political campaign videos for local television stations from the 1960s to the 1980s. Ms. Dollman and Dr. Orgeron joined us for an hour-long discussion about the significance of this material, their upcoming public screening, and how you can help contribute to the historical record!
Thanks again to Ms. Dollman and Dr. Orgeron for sharing their discovery with us!
