Historic Newsreels

This month, Films Media Group has added over 250 historic newsreels from United News to the FMG Digital Library. Focusing on World War II, these films offer an intriguing glimpse into American life during turbulent times. Useful as a primary source for historical and cultural research, each newsreel is segmented by subject for convenient searching and viewing, and can be integrated into custom playlists just like video content currently in your collection.

Titles are available immediately: in the "View By Subject" bar, click on the link "Archival Films & Newsreels" to browse over 1,200 newsreel segments, or use Advanced Search for keyword searches by selecting "Archival Films & Newsreels" in the "Subject" drop-down menu.

More archival film footage and newsreels will be available to subscribers soon.
