    This site is dedicated to the preservation, celebration and analysis of Teletext, the television information service introduced to British television in 1974 and familiar to UK viewers as Ceefax on the BBC and Oracle on ITV. Featuring a podcast, articles, archived pages from the service, and even an application that allows you to create your own Teletext page, the site is a labour of love, the pinnacle of which is a teletext time machine: a fully interactive Ceefax service for the 20th July 1979.

    Databases, Journals, TV/Radio listings

    This site offers a vast amount of information about broadcasting history, covering (despite the name) television and radio, mainly in the USA and Canada but also venturing as far afield as the UK and Australia. Of particular value to researchers are the wide range of digitised, searchable periodicals and journals which, although the main focus of the site is on the early days of broadcasting also stretch as far as the 21st century. NB. It is not clear to what degree rights have been cleared for some of the material on this site. David Gleason, who maintains the site, operates on a basis of ‘if the owner of the material complains I will take it down’ - rather than seeking permission beforehand.

    Databases, Information Sources, Lists

    This entertaining and informative site attempts to categorise, index and contextualise tropes - storytelling devices or conventions - as they appear in television programmes, films, games, music, literature, and other media. There are four main indexes: Genre Tropes, Media Tropes, Narrative Tropes and Topical Tropes. Each of these main headings is further subdivided so that under the Narrative Trope heading, for example, one can explore Characters, Conflict, Motifs Settings etc., down to a microscopic level of detail. The site began in 2004, primarily focusing on the television series ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’. Since then it has vastly expanded its scope to cover most types of media. Users can explore by series or trope. Each series entry features a list of tropes associated with that series, whereas users exploring by trope (British Teeth, for example) will find a list of that trope’s appearance in television, film, literature etc. Although the approach is often humorous the site represents an invaluable resource for anyone interested in exploring or analysing the building blocks of storytelling and narrative construction, in any medium, but particularly television.

As of March 2017 the number of results returned from a search for ‘Shakespeare’ in YouTube is nearing two million: for this reason the approach of BardBox is necessarily selective. Luke McKernan, who maintains the site, selects videos specifically created for distributon on YouTube, Vimeo, Daily Motion and other sites, and posts the content along with his own comments and details of cast, credits, date and links. An inspired and inspiring resource.

    This database was created by two Berliners to document and catalogue atrocities in the Syrian war. As of March 2017 the site has records of nearly 4,000 separate incidents, accompanied by video footage and indexed according to ten categories, including Violation of children’s rights; Use of illegal weapons; Unlawful attacks and Alleged Civilian Casualties from Russian attacks. The resource is intended for journalists, researcher, human rights organisations, activists and any group with an interest in the conflict. It is also intended to function as a repository of evidence for future historians. The United Nations, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, as well as lawyers and activists around the world, have all made use of the archive. This article on the Deutsche Welle website, features comments from the site’s creators, who talk about their reasons for making it, along with some of the problems they have faced, particularly the difficulties of verifying sources in a war zone

    Please note: the nature of this resource means that some of the footage is extremely graphic.

    This American film studies resource describes itself as a ‘public media archive and fair use advocacy network that supports the transformative reuse of media in scholarly and creative contexts’. Critical Commons encourages users to upload footage but differs from sites such as YouTube in that it accepts only content which is accompanied by a commentary or brief essay which places the media in a critical context in order to give it an educational value. The site makes use of ‘fair use: a concept in American law which allows the use of copyrighted material without having to notify or contact the rights holder, so long as the use is for limited and ‘transformative’ purposes. Useful for teachers and students in film and media studies.
