The history of Bond is rooted in British film heritage and it is important that it be preserved and celebrated. Preserving audiovisual heritage involves more than the preservation of actual titles, cultural conservation significantly contributes to preserving the legacy of screen treasures. Capturing current activities will provide our future archive.
UNESCO World Day for Audiovisual Heritage is observed every year on 27 October and our celebration of Bond heritage is a celebratory showcase of UNESCO and thier work. The aim of the day is to raise awareness of the issues and significance of preserving audiovisual material. The first World Day for Audiovisual Heritage was held in 2007.
The 007 franchise is the longest running in film history with twenty-three films produced since 1962. Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli took over the franchise from Albert R 'Cubby' Broccoli in 1995.
