The NHK project «Dementia – Reminiscence for Seniors» is a wonderful example how television archive footage can be re-used to tackle the rising problem of dementia. For this project NHK Archives launched a special website featuring about 300 TV programs. Through conversations while watching these nostalgic and favoured programs the older people’s brains are revitalized evoking memories of the viewers. The FIAT/IFTA Awards Jury quoted this project as pioneering of exploitation of archive material treating the global rising social issue of dementia.
