    The Moving Image and Recorded Sound (MIRS) Division documents the experiences of peoples of African descent, as they have been captured via audiovisual technology. The collections encompass a variety of formats including motion picture film (released prints and outtakes), video recordings, and music, and spoken arts recordings in several formats. Included in the broad range of audiovisual materials are documentary and dramatic films, principally focusing upon international political, anthropological, religious, and cultural arts themes. A unique collection of public affairs television programmes documents the local concerns of African Americans in communities across the United States. Public service announcements and commercial advertisements are also strongly represented.

    Since 1980 the MIRS has conducted oral history interviews through its Oral History/Video Documentation Programme. These primary source video testimonies are part of one of the nation’s longest-running video oral history programme.

    The collections are held at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Researchers from abroad may access the collection on site having obtained a temporary library card. Increasingly, the Center’s audio-visual holdings are being cataloged in The New York Public Library’s online public access catalogue.

    Indiana University’s moving image archive is one of the largest and most comprehensive academic film collections in the world. Particularly noteworthy is its vast educational film collection, which includes career training films, U.S. Department of War productions, and more than 5,600 programmes produced by the National Educational Television (NET) network, the precursor to PBS. A selection of over 200 digitised films from the archive is now freely available to view online. With prominence given to the educational films, this resource provides a valuable window into the history and development of the use of moving image in education and covers a wide range of academic subjects including African American Studies, Anatomy and Physiology, Film Studies, Psychology and Teacher Education. The collection covers over eight decades, from 1909 to 1994, but the majority of films are from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. The standard of the clips is generally good but in many cases the deterioration of the original film is inevitably reflected in the quality of the digital object itself.

    A podcast "based around ideas of the enlightenment" which promotes science, freedom of expression, scepticism, secular humanism, and often ends up dealing with the converse of these values: superstition, religious fundamentalism and authoritarianism. The show has featured numerous guests from the worlds of science, literature, philosophy and politics, including Frank Furedi, A.C. Grayling, Christopher Hitchens, Jonathan Meades to name but a few. The approach is often polemical but the result is always informative and entertaining. The programmes are free to download. The series is also broadcast on Resonance FM.

Many of the academics involved are biblical scholars, but the beauty of the site lies in its multifaceted approach, so that as well as theology, it takes in aspects of literature, geography, philosophy, politics, art and science, looking at the Bible in the context of the history of Western civilization.
