Wie wat bewaart, die heeft wat. De vraag is niet langer wie bewaart, want er is eindelijk een nationaal archief voor audiovisueel materiaal: het Nederlands Audiovisueel Archief, NAA. De actuele vraag is: wat moet en kan het NAA be- waren? Beleidsmakers, archiefbeheerders, producenten, omroepen en gebruikers worstelen al lang met richtlijnen voor een antwoord op de vraag welk materiaal de kosten en moeite van het bewaren waard is. Een chronologisch overzicht van de ontwikkelingen.---- Question of Choice. Acquisition and selection of the national audiovisual collectionSince the Netherlands finally set up its own national AV archive, a key question has been what should and can this Netherlands Audio-Visual Archive conserve. Policy-makers, archive managers, producers, broadcasting companies and users have been struggling for some time with guidelines for an answer to the question of which material is worth the cost and trouble of conserving. In his article, Piet van Wijk, former director of the Netherlands Audio-Visual Archive, sketches an anecdotal and undoubtedly subjective account of how archiving film and television (and, to a lesser extent, sound), became a hot item in the mid eighties. Which needs, shortcomings and requirements were identified? What were the solutions provided? And, most of all, what were the consequences for the daily practice of AV archiving - did increased attention for the subject in the eighties actually lead to 'better coordinated' or 'more responsible' archiving?
