550 000 historic videos

AP & british movietone

The Associated Press, in collaboration with the British Movietone, just shared over 550 000 historic videos on their Youtube page, which is actually “more than 1 million minutes of digitized film footage”.

It’s an elaborate encyclopaedia of significant moments from 1895 until today that the historical first press agency has released, from politics to music, from cinema to science, it’s basically everything and for all tastes.

Witness how the world evolved: most of the videos were not available online (or for free) before, therefore the list is huge... but here are some we picked up.

The AP will continue to update the archive with new videos from present day events.
