UNESCO Australian Memory of the World Register

The 1899-1903 Fanny Cochrane Smith’s Tasmanian Aboriginal recordings are inducted into the UNESCO Australian Memory of the World Register, on 8 February. They become the third NFSA collection item to be given this distinction,  joining the world’s first narrative feature film, The Story of the Kelly Gang (1906), and the Cinesound Movietone Australian Newsreel Collection (1929-1975) in the Register.
