Background to the DVDs

Between 1957 and 2000 the British Aviation Research Group (as it became known after a total of four name changes) produced approximately 29,000 pages of primarily military aviation data and photographs in BARG’s magazines and many other books and monographs.

BARG has for years felt that it would be very sensible to digitise all such information so it would be easily accessible to present and future historians and researchers.

Each DVD contains around 7,000 pages of indexed and digitally searchable data, photographs and memorabilia. The DVD also contains search instructions. The most challenging and complex, is DVD 1 (1957 -1981) containing different sizes of newsletters and magazines of varying quality, printing methods and typefaces, ranging from stencils to those produced with the now obsolete inked-fabric ribbon and electric ‘Golfball’ typewriter. DVD 1 will be produced out of sequence.

Both DVD 2 and DVD 3 are now available again; the sequence of subsequent DVDs will be as follows: DVD 1 (1957-1981) and DVD 4 (1995-2000).
