    Streaming/Download

    A YouTube channel which aims to tell the history of cinema, one film at a time. The first episode cheats slightly, covering the years 1888 - 1914 in one fell swoop, but from 1915 onwards the focus is on a single film per year, each example being selected for the way in which it demonstrates the advances made in the cinematic medium, in terms of technology, technique, genre etc. Amongst the directors covered are Charlie Chaplin, Sergei Eisenstein, Cecil B. DeMille and Buster Keaton. The site addresses animation, the advent of sound, techniques such as montage and the close-up, as well as early filmic examples of documentary, horror and science-fiction.

    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.
