Besides meeting old friends and gossiping about the state of your favourite university institution, GUST’s birthday celebrations will include a three-course meal, a champagne reception, and an exclusive after-party. We hope to bring together many GUST friends and alumni at this grand event.

Archive Documentary

A look behind the scenes, and into the archives!

As part of the GUST 50 project, we are collecting all sorts of records of the station’s history, and are also trying to provide access to some footage still kept on tape. The tapes are now stored with the University’s Archive Services, but we got some of them back to have a look. Our Archivist Arielle explains how we did it, what we found, and why she wanted to work on the project in this short documentary.
