Audiovisual heritage is very important for the society and the history, because we can learn a lot from the past and use this knowledge to make a better future.
Sometimes an event when it is currently going on, we don't feel the importance of it - or not as much as it effects the following happenings. After the World War 2, a new historical trend became alive - the oral history. And why is it related with the audiovisual heritage? The oral history is based on personal experiences, and to save all these experiences, many-many audiovisual equipments were needed.
And if you just think about your personal life - it is just so easy to grab your phone and take a photo or a video during an event and to save it for the future. Do not you think that it's also an important part of the audiovisual heritage? It is!
