The need to preserve audiovisual archives and the possibilities for their dissemination resulting from digitisation have generated a growing interest in the development of platforms to provide access to their content. One of these platforms is VideoActive, a pan-European collaborative project that has developed a thematic approach to European history through TV and to the history of European TV. One of its key objectives is to encourage collaboration with the academic world. The consortium has developed its own technical infrastructure to offer at least 10,000 items from 10 different European archives, including that of Televisió de Catalunya, the Catalan public service broadcaster that seeks to contribute to international awareness of Catalan culture.
