University Film Collection


The University Film Collection comprises analogue video tapes, in various formats, created by the University of Bath Audio Visual Unit (formerly the Educational Services Unit) and by the Students’ Union (Campus TV) covering a period from the late 1970s to 2012.
 
The films feature a wide range of University-related topics including various stages of campus development, building construction and refurbishment; academic business from teaching and research to programme overviews and award ceremonies; sporting achievements and events; and all aspects of student life. The Collection contains official material documenting formal institutional occasions, such as the installation of the Chancellor in Bath Abbey, as well as footage of individuals and groups engaged in less formal activities, such as RAG stunts. Some films represent a final, edited production while others are in an unedited, raw form.
 
As a whole the Collection provides a detailed and colourful overview of University history offering a richly versatile resource for both internal and external audiences.
 
As part of the University’s 50th Anniversary celebrations the University Film Collection has been digitised.
