    This European MEDIA project aims to Link the television archives of the majority of public television services in the Mediterranean region, as well as a number of regional university partners studying the media. From a design standpoint the website could hardly be plainer but it includes a database on documentary materials that should prove to be of great usefulness.
    This site is no longer active, but the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine offers a capture of the website as it appeared on 16/02/2008. This does not include access to the moving images.

    The combined archives of the Gaumont, Éclair and French Pathé news archives, with news material going back to 1896. There are a substantial number of streamed video copies of the Gaumont newsreels, making this site one of the leading sources of online historical news footage in the world. The videos use RealPlayer, for connections from 56K to T1, and the quality of the encodings is very high. The catalogue is available in French and English, the latter appearing to have been produced using a translation programme, which has produced some quaint results.

    Inspired by the Mass-Observation movement of the 1930s onwards, the BBC Video Nation site has grown out of its Video Diaries programmes of the 1990s, where people were given Hi-8 video cameras and invited to record their lives of a year. Video Nation Online was launched in 2001 with 250 of the original shorts. The site has expanded to some 750 films, with strong English regional coverage. The films are classified by theme, special features, localities and contributor. The films are available in both narrowband (56k|ISDN) and broadband (256k+) formats.

    Alan Macfarlane at Cambridge University has been interviewing anthropologists, historians,ethno-musicologists and international travellers on video since the 1980s. Extracts from forty of these as well as the full interviews, often lasting between sixty and ninety minutes or more, can be found on this rudimentary but easy to use site and will require QuickTime to access. The full interviews (not all of which are available yet) are chaptered in reasonable detail and include useful metadata on the topics covered. The encoding is top notch, but some of the material was originally of poor quality and can therefore be a little hard to follow.
