SABC Radio Archives: I catalogue radio programmes, snippets and sound to preserve it for future generations here at the SABC, but also for the country as a whole. I help to make the rich resource of radio material accessible for the generations to come. I make sure that our heritage of history, sound and stories will be available to all who might need it in future for use in programmes, news and actuality, as well as for purposes of research. I help with research, finding sound clips of a period of over a century of sound in our Archives. I tell the story of SABC Media Libraries on all the social media platforms to advocate for the work that we do here!
