    Open Images describes itself as an '... open media platform that offers online access to audiovisual archive material to stimulate creative reuse’. Based in Holland, this is an initiative of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision which seeks to offer content from audiovisual collections that can be downloaded and remixed into new works under a Creative Commons Licensing model. It makes use of open video formats (Ogg Theora) and open standards (HTML5, OAI-PMH). It currently holds nearly 1,400 items from the 1919 to the present day with contributors encouraged to upload content. Titles can be searched by language (English and Dutch) and period but also in terms of the specifics of end-user licensing conditions. Along with newsreels and lectures there are also items on a wide variety of topics including sport, science and nature, politics, sport and the arts. The search interface is simple and easy to use though the resource, while fascinating and in many ways a model of its kind, is desperately bare when it comes to providing information on how to search its actual content.

    This royalty free stock footage source is particularly well-designed and easy to use and offers moving images and stills from the birth of cinema up to 1996, with the largest range of material dating from the 1940s. Titles are nearly all non-fiction and drawn largely from U.S. government agency sources. It is possible to search by specific day, month, year or decade; while the broad keywording is very efficient, the resource has a default primary emphasis on geographical location.

    Survival is an international organization working for tribal people’s rights through education, advocacy and campaigns. They also offer tribal people themselves a platform to address the world. The website’s Tribal Channel streams a number of short films and video clips on tribes from around the world and their struggles for survival. Following controversy over the authenticity of footage contained in the television series Mark & Olly: Living with the Machigenga, in 2011 Survival International published a code of practice for filmmakers working with tribal peoples. The guidelines laid out in Ethical practice when filming tribal peoples aim to prevent further misrepresentations and potentially damaging portrayals of tribes. The code covers the importance of respect, safety, fair editing and truth and accuracy.

The mummy is that of a 30-year old woman from about 2300 years ago, and we are shown how the body was first scanned in to the computer, then reconstructed using CGI. The final results, which require QuickTime to view, allow the user to look at the different parts of the skull in six different ways. These include x-rays of the head and teeth, a 360 degree rotation of the skull as well as the mummy’s head being unwrapped layer by later.
