Thousands of UN Concerts recorded on reel to reel tapes since the 1950s will be captured for the first time on a computer, following a major donation by an American music lover, Al Schlachtmeyer.

Susan Myers from the UN Foundation, spoke to Beng Poblete-Enriquez about the role of the foundation in this project.
