        Dear all,

A Sunday newspaper is interested in writing a feature about a document or
collections of papers and/or photographs which is either little-known, newly
available to the public or newly acquired .   Have you got something
suitable?!   It could be anything from history but needs to have national
significance, relate to a well-known person or event or be strange or
controversial in some way.  Please let Lucy Fulton know ASAP - 020 8392
5237.


*       Thanks to everyone who has registered an event on the Archive
Awareness Campaign website - www.archiveawareness.com There are now 350
events searchable online!!  If you have not yet registered your event it's
not to late to do so - simply fill in the online form:
http://www.archiveawareness.com/contributors/register/form.html

*       If you requested promotional material when you registered your event
you should be receiving that in the next few days.

*       AAC has been working with the BBC on the "Who Do You Think You Are"
initiative:
*       The major BBC 2 series will be broadcast over 10 weeks beginning 12
October and finishing 14 December - Tuesday evenings at 9pm.  Celebrities
include Moira Stewart, David Baddiel, Ian Hislop, Sue Johnston, Jeremy
Clarkson and Bill Oddie.
*       The BBC National Family History Weekend will take place on 4-5
December and will consist of 40 events run by regional BBC radio stations
around the UK.  We will know details of the venues of these events by 28
October.  If you are interested in helping at one of these events you can
register your interest on this form
http://www.archiveawareness.com/materials/bbcregistrationform.doc and send
back to [log in to unmask] or post to Lucy Fulton at 
                        The National Archives
                        Kew Richmond Surrey

*       You can now find our evaluation forms on the website at
http://www.archiveawareness.com/contributors/gettingstarted/toolkits.html
There is one form for distribution to those participating in events and one
for those organising events. Please return them to Katie Norgrove  at 
                The National Archives
                Kew Richmond Surrey
                TW9 4DU

*       If you are sending out a press release about your event or activity
you can find a paragraph about Archive Awareness Campaign to use in the
Notes to Editors section on the website
http://www.archiveawareness.com/materials/2004Toolkit3.pdf

*       We are still looking for news stories to help promote Archive
Awareness campaign for the national media.  If you know of a document that
you think would attract media attention please let me know.  For instance,
do you have records of particularly grizzly medieval deaths or is there
something in the records about witchcraft?  Please let Lucy Fulton know ASAP
if you have any ideas - 020 8392 5237. 

*       If you have come across any eye-catching images in the archives that
you think will help launch the campaign to the media please send a jpg to
[log in to unmask]  There will be a launch for the media
and opinion formers on 20 October to help publicise the aims of the campaign
so we would particularly like anything relating to an event which occurred
on a previous 20 October (e.g. 20 October 1955 - BBC demonstrates colour TV
at Alexandra Palace; 20 October 1960 - the Lady Chatterley trial opens).
Alternatively, if you have a great image relating to plants, travel or
transport or any other part of the Routes to Roots theme, we would love to
have a look.  Please send any images as jpgs to
[log in to unmask] 	

*       We are also still in need of anniversaries related to documents for
the following dates in November for the On This day feature that will run in
Metro throughout that month.  To help inspire please find some anniversaries
