U.N. TV forum deals with audio archives.

Approximately 550 people from 45 countries participated in the third annual United Nations TV Forum. The event, held at the U.N. headquarters in New York on November 19, featured 60 presentations that attracted top-level media executives from around the world. These included: Conrad Black of Hollinger International, Rupert Murdoch of News Corp., Fedele Confalonieri of Mediaset, France Television's Xavier Gouyou Beauchamps, Giuliano Berretta of Eutelsat, Edward Bleier of Warner Bros., the International Council's Georges Leclere, NATPE's Bruce Johansen, Jean Stock of TV5 and Bruce Gyngell of Nine Network Australia.

The event, which was sponsored by RAI, Mediaset, France Television, NHK and the International Council, also featured participation from the European Broadcasting Union, the North American National Broadcasters Association and several other international audiovisual associations. The theme of the forum was "The Future of Audio-Visual Memory." RAI's executives used the forum as an opportunity to propose the creation of an audiovisual library.

Tom Rogers of NBC delivered the keynote address, "Our Future With Digital TV," during a luncheon held by NATPE and the International Council. Rogers is pictured above, with RAI President Roberto Zaccaria looking on.
