Scope and content

Series consists of moving image recordings presented to or regarding W.A.C. Bennett. Series includes film reels and video cassettes created by public and private producers. Materials relate to activities and projects of the British Columbia government, and to the life of W.A.C. Bennett. Included are recordings of public ceremonies, interviews with Bennett, and biographical sketches of Bennett.

Items within the series vary in quality, with some recordings having no sound components. Some recordings are composed of out-takes which were spliced together.

Reference cassettes (U-Matic format) were produced to provide access to eleven of the items originally on film. Other items are in VHS cassette format originally or have had individual VHS cassette copies made of them. U-Matic and VHS cassettes were digitally copied to uncompressed .mov format. Three items are available on film only, including a film produced by the National Film Board, newsreel footage produced by M.G.M studios, and a film produced by the Mining Association of B.C. which was presented to W.A.C. Bennett, but is not directly related to Bennett himself.
