Audio-visual collection

Scope and Content

This sub-section includes a home-video collection of 58 camcorder tapes. Many of the home-videos were taken by Liana Burgess and feature (frequently silent) journeys, e.g. taxi and train journeys during publicity tours. Other recorded events include lectures and seminars given by Burgess, and Burgess playing music with his son, Andrew.

The audio-visual collection also includes commercial recordings of Burgess's own works and other film and television series, which were purchased by (or given to) Burgess, his wife, Liana, or son, Andrew, for their own enjoyment.
