When the request went out for Alumni to suggest projects from the past to be considered for highlighting in the celebration of the Centre’s 50th anniversary, it came to light that the films produced by the Communications Division in the 1970s-1980s are available as videos on YouTube. They are listed here under the programme labels of the time.Most of the films were made by Neill McKee of IDRC’s Communications Division during 1975-1987.
