    The Library first purchased a large collection of negatives from Gladys Hood in 1972. This collection (which included nitrate negatives which have subsequently been copied) at DG 0N4 & NCY 28-61 was transferred to a videodisc in 1991 and each image indexed individually. Ted Hood assisted with the indexing; images were also identified using surviving studio registers. The videodisc, known as the Home & Away disc (or simply the Hood collection) was digitised in 1996, and mounted on the Internet, with upgraded index records, via the online catalogue in December 1998.
