As time passes our memories increase in quantity and value. Has technology evolved to protect the photographs and memories we hold close? Or is it a threat?

In this thought-provoking episode, we delve into the stories of three photographers whose collections of work were on the brink of being lost forever, only to be miraculously discovered. We also explore how our images and digital memories are in danger and what we can do to help them survive the next 100 years and beyond.

We talk with George Oates, co-founder of the Flickr Foundation about the goal to preserve the Flickr Commons archive. Also, meet Brendan Flesher, a passionate photographer and an innovative archivist, exploring how new technologies can be used to ensure that the images he salvages can persist far into the future.

Step with us through a portal in time as we share the stories, photographs and archives that connect us all.
