Science Museum Late event on 26 November. With the variety of events taking
place being delivered by WMUK volunteers and staff, as well as a
significant audience, there are many ways we can create video and
photographic resources for us to use in future communications.
In order to make the most of this chance it will require some planning and
some thought as to what we would like to record and what we plan to use
these materials for.

materials. Firstly, a collection of views on Wikipedia could be recorded
with event attendees. These would act as a supplement to the survey that
will be conducted during the event.
Other footage would be of some of the sessions themselves, and interviews
with some of the staff and volunteers, as well as colleagues form the
Does anyone have any other particular thoughts?
In order to complete these tasks, we will need some volunteers. We'd all
