Wessex Film and Sound Archive

Using the online catalogue

Our online catalogue lists almost everything we hold in both Hampshire Archives and the Wessex Film and Sound Archive, and we have listed records at both collection and item level. We are continually adding detailed descriptions to all our film and sound recording entries, however please be aware that some only have very basic information, such as a title and date only.

How to find film and sound recordings on our catalogue

To search for only film and sound items, follow the guidance below:

  • Hover your mouse over Advanced Search and click on Catalogue.
  • In the Any Text box simply write any words you are looking for, e.g. Winchester shops or “air raid shelter” (put your words in quotation marks if you are searching for an exact phrase). You can also add a date range in to the Date field, if required.
  • From the Format drop-down box select either Sound recording or Video recording, depending on what you are searching for.
  • Click on the search button.
