In January the Open University Digital Archive (OUDA) launched a new online exhibition celebrating the relationship between the OU and Milton Keynes to coincide with Milton Keynes’ 50th birthday.
The exhibition features video, audio, images and text and is divided into three sections:
- The OU comes to Milton Keynes
Find out why the OU chose Milton Keynes as its home, featuring archive footage and images of the OU campus
- Early plans for Milton Keynes
Take a look at some of the initial proposals for artwork in Milton Keynes including a short film by artist Gavin Jones
- Milton Keynes in OU courses
Investigate how Milton Keynes has featured in OU courses and TV series over the past five decades with video and audio footage from the 1970s and the 1980s.
