A consortium of University of Chicago scholars, librarians, and partnering archivists and filmmakers will create the Guerrilla Television Network—preserving and presenting the history of guerrilla television to a much wider audience. Supported by a grant of nearly $500,000 from the Council on Library and Information Resources and spearheaded by Media Burn, CMS, and the UChicago library, the three-year project will digitize 1,015 videotapes produced from 1967-1979.
