TNA Podcast: Challenges facing the (UK) National Archives

Dr Andrew Foster from the (UK) Historical Association conducts a friendly interview with Oliver Morley, Acting Chief Executive of the (UK) National Archives. They talk about the strategic challenges faced by TNA in difficult economic times in the UK. The interview was recorded on 29 November 2010.

This is a topic unlikely to be of interest to the genealogist visiting the blog for resources to further their research; nevertheless, there is reassurance in finding that Oliver Morley comes across as someone who knows his topic and is able to communicate it in fairly straightforward terms.

Although TNA faces the same technological challenges as other similar institutions it is relatively well placed to weather government cutbacks owing to measures, including Monday closing, taken in 2010.
