The Tony Pritchett Archive is temporarily safely homed in my house and garage.

The BFI will eventually home the celluloid, once I have raised funds to digitise it. Huge thanks to Jez Stewart for arranging this.

The Computer Arts Society have kindly offered to host this footage in the CAS Archive and to house the physical documents in the Interact Archive. Huge thanks to Dr. Nick Lambert and to Sean Clark.

The researching and celebrating of the archive contents has evolved into a group-project involving artists, scientists, friends and colleagues and fans of Tony’s, to whom I am eternally grateful.

176 film cans stored in a cool, dry garage.
16 bankers boxes (eco card for Tony) full of docs

// Below is an overview of Tony’s career and archive contents. The clip is an excerpt from a lecture given at Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, by Dr. Victoria Marshall, Prof David Duce and myself.) //
