The site formerly known as Media Unions
Back in the mists of time when the Web was young (1995) this
was the home page of a project by a group of volunteer activists in the National
Union of Journalists and the Broadcast Entertainment Cinematograph and Theatre
Union to set up a shared Web presence for media unions in the UK and Ireland.
Then in 1997 BECTU figured out what we were on about and got its own site.
So until March 2002 this formed the unofficial NUJ site.
It is now the site of
Freelance Branch of the National Union of Journalists,
and quite a lot else besides.
This evolution - and the need to keep thousands of people's links and
bookmarks working - explains why the site structure may still seem a
bit twisty. We're working on it.
