Audio-visual collection

Scope and Content

Largely unlisted, this collection includes commercial recordings of Burgess's own works and of other film and television series, which were purchased by (or given to) Burgess, his wife, Liana, or son, Andrew, for their own enjoyment. It also contains 58 home-videos, many of which were recorded by Liana Burgess and feature (frequently silent) journeys, e.g. taxi rides and train journeys during publicity tours. Other recorded events include lectures and seminars given by Burgess, and Burgess playing music with his son, Andrew.

Access Information

Since this collection is largely unlisted, access is via written application to the Archivist. (Currently, we do not have the facility to play Super 8mm film.)
