Marion Stokes secretly recorded television 24 hours a day for 30 years from 1975 until her death in 2012. For Marion taping was a form of activism and she believed that an archive would be invaluable for future generations. Now her 70,000 VHS tapes are being digitised and they’ll be searchable online.
