Radical Times Archive

"Collect, Preserve, and Share"


An audio-visual archival resource focusing on radical activism around Australia, particularly during the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s (although resources are not restricted exclusively to this time period).


The archive recovers "lost" and rare independent Australian documentaries (also vérité footage of historical significance) in order to preserve these films, videos and audio for posterity before they reach end of life and disappear permanently.


The focus is on visual/aural material.....the archive currently has 196 film streams and 89 audio streams.


While the focus is on Australian resources, there is an international section featuring films made outside Australia by Australians.


To round out the collection and provide context, printed matter, photos, and other images are included where possible.


Not only is this archive designed as a tool for appreciating and understanding the past, it is also hoped it will provide perspective and ideas for future endeavours for social and political action.


Please be aware this site contains images and voices of indigenous people now deceased.
