News on DVD1 (updated December 2019)
Since the last update we have explored several other scanning companies but are still not getting acceptable results; problems that were easy to resolve on DVDs 2 and 3 are proving much more difficult on DVDs 1 and 4. And no, the problems are not with the older material, they are occurring with the A5 BARs and Roundels. [It seems that many companies are now using more modern scanning equipment which sacrifices quality for speed; archive scanning is a legal requirement for many documents but it does not stipulate what quality the scans have to be!]. We are continuing to pursue various avenues in the hope of getting satisfactory results.
After all the preparation work we have done we are not going to give up; we are on the home straight but it is not all plain sailing.
