The role that television has played in western cultures over the last 50 years has engaged a wide range of researchers in considering its power and influence in society. In addition, the popular belief in the power and influence of television, together with its role as a mirror, reflecting community values and expectations, suggests that it is an important communications medium that should be collected and preserved in a manner that ensures access is available for future researchers. This paper investigates the nature and extent of holdings of Logie Award television programs in the nation's major publicly-funded archives. The results suggest that while there are major gaps, overall holdings are generally good, with representative or comprehensive collections being maintained across most genres.
