Scope and content

The series comprises 20 documentary sound programs produced to accompany publications in the Sound Heritage Series, a historical quarterly published by the Provincial Archives of British Columbia (PABC) from 1976 to 1983. The archives's Aural History Programme (after 1980, the Sound and Moving Image Division) was responsible for the publication. Both the journal and the sound programs were based on excerpts from oral history interviews in the collection of the Provincial Archives. The actual editing and production of the sound programs was contracted to freelancers, often the same individual that recorded the interviews and edited the corresponding journal. The sound programs usually focused on or amplified an aspect or aspects of the the subject of the journal.

The series includes working tapes, spliced originals, volume-corrected program masters, and cassette duplicating masters.
