Television is a practice of memory
-Experience of history is increasingly mediated through television
-And vv : television’s history is memorialised through increased use of archival material: cultural trend!
No matter its broad support, access remains restricted

EUscreen challenges the problems of fractured access:
EUscreen meets the need for integrated access (such as with Europeana) as well for user development in different contexts
EUscreen meets the need for awareness of diversity of European cultures and identities and the demand for historical knowledge in general
Connected to:
www.euscreen.eu
Providing the necessary technical solutions for Europeana to support audiovisual content that meets user requirements
Connected to:
www.euscreen.eu
Creating on-demand and user-led access to television content from broadcasters and archives across the whole of Europe
Developing and evaluating four use cases, notably learning, research, leisure/cultural heritage and open culture productions
Connected to:

User scenarios
Euscreen has developed user scenarios to specify the various uses of the portal by the different target groups.
Education scenarios (primary, secondary education)
Research senarios
Connected to:
www.euscreen.eu
Scenarios: education
Children work together with grandparents to explore differences and similarities in how events and subjects were represented differently over the years: archive media are compared with present day media (primary education)
Subject is the history of public opinion making around Olympic Games, from Berlin 1936 until Beijing 2008. The discussion focuses on how media can influence young people’s perception of popular historic event (secondary).
Connected to:
www.euscreen.eu
Scenarios: research
A researchers’ team will explore and identify the complete set of meta-communicational tools (gestures and mimics) used by newsreel-commentators in European televisions and detect differences which might be caused by national characteristics, but the team also follows changes in time, due to altering behavioural fashion and political environment.
Connected to:
www.euscreen.eu
Scenarios: leisure
A leisure-time user, being an old fan of Johan Crujff, the football legend of the Netherlands wants to watch a detailed, longish portray-film about this football player. The film which meets his demands does not exist, but using EUscreen it can be created almost automatically just by the proper search of data, by a skilled use the metadata-facilities, and by some supported editing activity.
