Reference Tapes, 1972 - 1999
These tapes were found interfiled with tapes archived as part of the Program Materials. They were separated out during archival processing.
The majority of these tapes are 3/4" screening tapes. Included are clip reels of samples created for funders, proposals, and non-broadcast purposes. Also included are samples of work submitted by artists applying to the Workshop. At one point, the Workshop was attempting to create a dance archive by collecting tapes of works broadcast by other television stations. This dance archive also includes tapes of performances by Massachusetts area dance companies. Some individual tapes of events sponsored by the Workshop also exist. These include screening tapes exhibited as part of the 1999 Massachusetts College of Art video art showcase exhibit, "Transmission." Many of the Reference Tapes are described as such in the WGBH Archives database where they are cataloged at the item-level.
