UNESCO22 oktober 2011: What do the movies Transformers 3, Independence Day, Lord of War and King Kong have in common? They all used archival material obtained from the United Nations in their production. Many more movie did the same.

And what’s more? Film footage going back to the League of Nations — the Commission of Enquiry into Events in Manchuria on the eve of the WWII, for example; Security Council meetings dealing with all major issues related to international peace and security since 1945; UN Radio dramas featuring Laurence Olivier, Audrey Hepburn, Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby; interviews with cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin and footballer Pelé; concerts by world renowned orchestras in the General Assembly Hall…

And what about Khrushchev banging his fist during the debate on the Congo crisis; Yasser Arafat’s famed “rifle and olive branch” speech; Castro, Deng Xiaoping, Mandela, Kings and Queens and occasionally the Pope? These historic footage is all kept at the United Nations audiovisual archives.

The audio and photo archives held by the UN Department of Public Information are a unique collection that tells the stories not only of international diplomacy that shaped our history but also of the people and the times they lived in. The collection comprises 37,500 hours of film and video, 800,000 photographs, and about 55,000.00 hours of audio recordings.

27 October is World Day of Audiovisual Heritage, declared by UNESCO in 2005, a day which aims to raise awareness of the importance of audiovisual documents and draw attention to the urgent need to safeguard them.

    Ban Ki-moon lauds vision and achievements of UNESCO on 65th anniversary

    Lauding the vision and achievements of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) over the past 65 years, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon stressed today that the mandate of the agency remains as relevant as ever.
    “The Organization’s ability to broker new ideas… to bring the right people together… to mobilize political will… to explore thorny questions… to set standards… and to build capacity – these are vital today and for the century ahead,” he said in a video message to mark the anniversary of the Paris-based agency.

    Mr. Ban noted that for 65 years, UNESCO has worked to build the defenses of peace in the minds of men and women. It has also promoted education for all, safeguarded cultural expression and supported cultural diversity. In addition, the agency has worked to harness science for the greater good, and to advance freedom of information and access to knowledge, he said.

    “UNESCO also builds the defenses of peace in the hearts of men and women by reminding us of the dignity and human rights that we all share,” the Secretary-General added. “Hearts and minds – this is the passion that has always driven the Organization.”

    Mr. Ban thanked the agency for its achievements, and its staff for their dedication and hard work, as well as all Member States for their continuing commitment to the “ambitions that animate this great Organization.” The agency, which is led by Director-General Irina Bokova, has 193 member States and seven associate member States.
