The AIB Network's new six-part series Living History explores how memorabilia, manuscripts, and photographs preserve the past and inform the present and future. Living History also looks at the race against time faced by archivists and historians working to digitize existing archives as well as preserve digital archives.
The show airs weekly: Thursdays at 9PM, Fridays at 10:30 a.m., Saturdays at 1 p.m., Sundays at 10 p.m., and Mondays at 11p.m. through August 27, 2018.
Living History introduces viewers to the archive at Columbia Theological Seminary, the museum and archive at the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum and the Crypt of Civilization at Oglethorpe University. Viewers will also visit the Salvation Army Southern Historical Center, the American Baptist Historical Society, and the APEX Museum. A personal collection of 750 crosses preserved at Columbia Theological Seminary, a baby's bassinet made from a wooden barrel by German POW's during World War Two archived at the Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, and the world's largest time capsule sealed until the year 8113 at Oglethorpe University are just a few of the stories you'll hear about in the new AIB Network series Living History.
