The aim of the National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales is to preserve, promote and celebrate the sound and moving image heritage of Wales. The Archive is home to a comprehensive and unrivalled collection of films, television programmes, videos, sound and music recordings relating to Wales and the Welsh.
The Archive’s collection is varied and encompasses every aspect of the culture and life of Wales and its people as chronicled by audio-visual media in sound, video, film and the latest digital formats.
The Archive was established in 2001, when the Wales Film and Television Archive was merged with the National Library of Wales’ Sound and Moving Image Collection. The Archive is funded by the National Library of Wales and the Welsh Government.
