The loss  of Aardman animation history to a major fire is  sad news. The 
final  results, PERFORMANCE on film, tape, disc remains, and was the goal of all 
that  effort. 

Preserving the original 3-D puppets, awards, posters, photos  and such as 
important. Their destruction is a great loss, but those of us who  strive to 
preserve this kind of puppetry history know that not all the good  stuff is 
preserved. We do the best we can in the face of fire, flood, storm,  politics, war 
and other disasters. 

It is also a reason that that  photographic and written records, books, DVDs 
and so on are an important  backup for preservation of puppet history, and 
such records need to be stored  in more than one place or future puppeteers will 
lose an important  legacy.---ALAN COOK



Should be stored in a steel reinforced concrete vault,  that is climate 
controlled
   Could be a preservation society set up and persons can pay an  annual fee 
to
   store back ups , etc.. , something like a small commercial  bank vault.
