A Date with Luyu – Cui Yongyuan 1

 

transcript

 

我现在是在我的母校北京广播学院,当然这已经改名叫中国传媒大学了,只不过到现在为止还不太习惯这个名字。想想我在广院上学的时间差不多是二十年前了,很久很久以前,所以再次回到这儿,内心觉得是挺复杂的感觉,有点儿一言难尽。

I am now in my alma mater, Beijing Broadcasting Institute, of course, it was renamed Communication University of China several years ago. But I am still not accustomed to it. It’s been almost twenty years since I studies here. It’s quite a while ago, so I feel emotional today, and the feelings are unspeakable.

 

今天我回到广院是要采访我的一个同行也是我的校友——崔永元。不过他毕业得比我早。他毕业的时候我还没有入校,所以在广院期间,我们之间没有见过面。

I’m here today to interview one of my peers and alumni –Cui Yongyuan. He is an early graduate before me. I didn’t start school when he graduated, so we didn’t meet during that time.

 

很多观众都知道他已经又回到广院,当了一位老师,说实在我内心有点羡慕他。等一下我就会见到他,他说会带我在校园里面转一转,特别是要给我看一份送给母校的礼物。

Many audiences know that he returned to the college to be a teacher. Honestly, I am a little envy of that. He says that he is going to show me around in the campus, and in particular, he will show me a gift that he gave to our school when I meet him later.

 

位于中国传媒大学的这栋四层小楼是崔永元的口述历史研究中心,也是他送给母校的礼物。走进这栋看起来低调朴素的楼里,几千件整齐排列的收藏品,令人眼前一亮。这里设有口述历史,电影,连环画,老艺术家,书画等七个博物馆。

This four-storey building in CUC is the gift he gave to his alma mater, the Cui Yongyuan Center for Oral History. Walking into the simple low-key building, thousands of neatly arranged collections are revealed and delight you. There are seven museums here, including the braches of oral history, film, comic books, old artists, painting and calligraphy.

 

既有百年前的钢琴,书本,也有几乎所有名家连环画的手稿;既有民国以来的电影海报和杂志,又有老艺术家们生前房间的真实还原。而这些仅仅是崔永元所有收藏的冰山一角。

Not only the piano and books used centuries ago, but also comic manuscripts of the famous artists are collected in here. Not only the film posters and magazines from Republican period , but also it has the restored apartments of the old artists. And these collections are just the tip of the iceberg.

 

这儿并不仅仅是博物馆,也是同学们的自习室和教室,崔永元说,要让同学们在这里,真正触摸和感受到历史。

It is not just a museum, but a study room and classroom for students. Cui says that he wants them to touch and feel the history.
