Preserving a cultural heritage

A special issue from Weekly Variety

When people hear the word “preservation,” they typically think of film. But Weekly Variety’s special themed issue carries more than a dozen stories, included on this page, spotlighting the work being done in TV, theater, print and videogames, as well as film– everything from groundbreaking series to dance performances to Pac-Man and “Hee-Haw.”

In every case, there are questions of money, manpower and technology, all facing the common enemy of time. Digital was once touted as indestructible, but has since proven that it won’t last forever. Preservation, clearly, is an ongoing job.
