VISUAL RESOURCES - VIDEOS, NEWSREELS ETC.
The entire Associated Press Archive is
now online at YouTube. What a great
resource for teachers, librarians, and
students working on research and/or
visual literacy. http://www.aparchive.com/
BRITISH MOVIETONE is arguably
the world’s greatest newsreel archive,
spanning the period 1895 – 1986.
Shot on 35mm film, this global archive
contains many of the world’s enduring
images and is rich in coverage of news
events, celebrities, sports, music, social
history, science, lifestyle and quirky.
It was the first newsreel to include
sound, the first to use colour film, the
first to break many exclusive stories,
and is your first and last stop for
newsreel footage. The collection is fully
digitized and now available from AP Archive.
