This is the perl script I use to convert a marc/unimarc record in iso format 
encoded with an 8bit charset into utf8 encoded iso2709 record.
This is working for me moving records iso2709 unimarc from iso8859-1 to utf-8.

  perl marc-to-utf8.pl filename > outputfilename

MARC::Record 2.0 is needed to do that.

I hope this helps.
