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.
