    This site is the result of a project undertaken by the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) about the conscientious objectors of the First World War. It tells the stories of five young people who opposed World War I and, through diary entries, films, and other contextual material (such as contemporary newspaper stories and the transcripts of tribunals) recounts their experiences from the outbreak of war, to the introduction of conscription and the legislation which recognised conscientious objection. The audiovisual material which accompanies the project include plays, documentaries, audio clips and other useful teaching resources.

    Radharc was an Irish television documentary religious affairs series broadcast by RTÉ Television from 1962 until 1996. The documentaries were created by a film unit funded by the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin, John Charles McQuaid, in anticipation of the inauguration of television broadcasting in Ireland by RTÉ in December 1961. The film unit was staffed exclusively by Catholic priests, including Joe Dunn, Desmond Forristal and Sean Lemass. The Irish language word radharc means vision, view, or panorama.
    The Radharc collection is one of the most important and substantial bodies of work held by the Irish Film Institute. The collection totals some 2,340 cans and 2,093 broadcast quality tapes. Over 130 documentaries deal with non-Irish issues. The material acquired comprises the various preservation elements required to produce a finished documentary, including soundtracks, voiceovers, sound effects, off cuts, final mix negatives, cutting copies and final prints, with copyright in the films shared between the Radharc Trust and RTÉ.
    A number of the titles can be viewed freely on the website.

    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.

    Arab Media Watch is a UK-based organisation that feels Arabs have long been misrepresented, under-represented and negatively stereotyped in Western media and film. Britain is no exception. They believe that the advent of the internet and satellite broadcasting provides a unique opportunity to educate and inform public opinion and that AMW has filled a vital niche in striving for objective British coverage of Arab issues, be they political, economic, cultural or social. Main activities include: - monitoring and analysing the British media (there is a BBC Watch group) as well as helping journalists and editors with research, information and interviews, and producing monitoring studies of coverage in newspapers, magazines, TV, radio and websites. The website also gives listings of relevant forthcoming and previously broadcast radio and television programmes.

    A thorough, informative and well-illustrated site on the Limelight Department of the Salvation Army in Australia, which in the 1890s and 1900s incorporated films into its public presentations, most famously with the spectacular multimedia show Soldiers of the Cross (1900). There is much sound information on its activities, leading personalities such as Herbert Booth, and the cinematographic equipment they used. The only drawback is the length of time each page takes to download.
    This site is no longer active, but the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine offers a capture of the website as it appeared on 08/04/2012. This does not include access to the moving images.
