The London Community Video Archive (LCVA) is preserving the work of the Community Video movement in the 1970s and 80s, in London and the South East. In the early 1970s portable video recording equipment became available, and it was possible for the first time for people outside of mainstream broadcasting to make their own television. LCVA’s aim is to draw attention to these unheard voices and images, enabling them to be used in contemporary debates and activism. This page features 4 videos that introduce different aspects of the site. They are also viewable in the Extras section here, and USING THE SITE is also available as a PDF here.
