The Coalition to Preserve the Public Record CPPR 2013

This site will be an attempt to give you updates on where the project is at.  Since 2004 on Beacon Hill, CatchoftheDay,VideoNews,FreelanceReporting, Videographer, Janet Aldrich has been collecting Public Works Video Documents of Public Hearings on the Hill with the motivation of starting the CPPR Archive File for News Outlets to donate full public video records for public viewing. 

On the Hill, the Legislature has been keeping a record of some public hearings but not the full extent.  This is not acceptable.  It is not that hard if there are Reporters who will donate one Hearing even in one year to the Archive.  It is hoped that this will be incorporated soon.

We need funding.  If you would like to contribute to the project send checks to the CPPR Archive Project c/o JAldrich, 34B Rust Street Hamilton, Ma 01982


Just the expenses to keep a record off line is expensive and terabyte storage is urgent. To find our footage at the time until July 31 please check

We are attempting to download this footage and transfer to youtube but the time constraint is always being interrupted.  If you would like to help transfer video data please email, we need lots of hands to help this project which will eventually require full time staff.  So if you need  a future job you might like to invest time and talent here and see if this is for you.
