  • [01] Parliament receives copy of BBC Greek Service archives

    The Greek Parliament on Tuesday received a copy of the BBC Greek Service archives in a bid to "preserve the recent historic memory of Greece", as Parliament President Anna Psarouda-Benaki stressed.

    "From Parliament's library, researchers but also anyone that wishes, will be able to gain access to a living source of modern Greek history", Benaki said.

    "These auditory reports that record an entire era will offer a new outlook to research," she added.

    The archives, stored in a collection of 2,000 CD-Roms, cover 66 years of news reports by Greek presenters for the BBC and were handed over to the Greek Parliament during an official ceremony held in Parliament's Peristyle that was attended by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

    During the ceremony, selected extracts of the archives were played, including the Greek services first broadcast in September 1939 and the last in December 2005, as well as newscasts during the troubled years of World War II and the seven-year military dictatorship in Greece.
