Watch selections Boston public television station's collection of historic video clips. Excellent source for "...unique and historically important content produced by the public television and radio station WGBH. The ever-expanding site contains video, audio, images, searchable transcripts, and resource management tools..." Some selections are "records" (similar to "citation only") and do not have the videos, but indicate that the video is available in the archive.
Videos include print transcripts - an enormous help. Ability to search by topic, people, place, date, media and series (tv series). Also option to "browse" general categories and a general search bar. Option to set up an account and "become a member". Option to sign up for newsletter.
