What kind of material does TV Ark want?
We would like vintage examples of television presentation and programme opening title sequences.
How do i send in material?
First decide which section of the Ark best suits your contribution. Then contact the relevant team member by email (Check Contact Us link at top of the page).
They will contact you and forward a postal address for you to send your tape/DVD. If you are not sure who to email please use the enquiries address.
What formats do TVARK accept?
• VHS (PAL or NTSC)
• BETAMAX (PAL)
• DVD-R / DVD+R (PAL or NTSC)
• MINI DV (PAL)
• DVCAM (PAL)
• DVCPRO (PAL)
• BETA SP (PAL)
• DIGIBETA (PAL)
Can i capture and email AVI, Quicktime, Windows Media files?
No. Unfortunately TVARK does not accept these formats for a number of reasons. Firstly websnatching. Secondly we prefer to keep full size off-air copies in our library, for future developments, resizing clips etc. (please do not send emails with attachments without advanced notice)
How long will it take for my material to appear on the site?
TVARK is run by a team of 8 people as a hobby in our spare time. Therefore it may take days or months, so please bear with us.
Will my tape/DVD be returned?
No, but exceptions are made if required.
Can i contribute information instead of tapes?
Yes! we welcome comments, especially if you were a cast member and would like to correct occassional mistakes or maybe add more specific dates.
