ISLES OF SCILLY - COMMUNITY VOICES DIGITAL ARCHIVE

An archive of film and video taken, by Mary Bushell over a period of thirty years, of members of the Isles of Scilly community and other subjects pertaining to the islands. With a little help from Ed Cumming and recently, a signification contribution from Emma Moore of Sheffield University, these have now been enhanced and digitised.  These are kept at the Isles of Scilly Museum.  Hopefully a list will soon be made available.  Contact the museum or go to:  www.hrionline.ac.uk/scillyvoices
