Summary of Document

This is a mixed file containing correspondence, papers, minutes and reports on sport during the 1970s. There is a 26 page draft report by Joseph Weltman, a copy of an ITA report on sport from June 1968, and meeting minutes from the European Broadcasting Union (EBU). Additionally there is a photocopy of a legal opinion document on the agreement made in Zurich (5/12/1968) between the EBU and Telesistema Mexicano. This was related to the 1970 world cup. There are notes, minutes and correspondence on this world cup also. There are also photocopies of documents regarding the 1976 Olympics in Montreal. The documents discuss working with the BBC to cover the games. The file seems to mostly cover international sporting competitions and would be extremely useful to a researcher studying the history of the Olympics, world cup or EBU. The file dates from between June 1968 – Dec 1975.
