About the BRIDGE Project

BRIDGE: Building Rich Links To Enable Television History Research

The BRIDGE Project (2009-2014) was a collaboration between the Intelligent Systems Lab Amsterdam (ISLA) at the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the Centre for Television in Transition (CTiT) at Utrecht University (UU), and the Netherlands Institute for Sound & Vision (Beeld & Geluid). It was part of the NWO-funded CATCH Programme.
