Google Video to put 103 Films online from The National Archives

Google Video to put 103 Films online from The National Archives

United News Film

Google Video and U.S. archivist Allen Weinstein are working together on a pilot program to compile 103 films to put online for free download.  The films include movies, documentaries, and other cinematic creations that are archived in Washington, D.C.

"This is an important step to achieve our goal to become an archive without walls," Weinstein said. "For the first time, the public will be able to view this collection of rare and unusual films on the Internet emphasizing the importance of providing access to records anytime, anywhere."

 

You can access the videos at both Google Video and at the National Archives website.  The films are of newsreels about World War II and NASA documentaries on the space program.  There is also one of the earliest films from 1894 called “Camencita – Spanish Dance.”  There is also a film showing the beginning of the national and state park system.  Another film shows how the Boulder Dam was made.

 

Google has added print online as well as video online.  The Google Video service has both free videos to watch as well as paid viewing.  CBS television shows are available to download at a price.  You can also watch music videos, some are free and some are $1.99. You can also watch NBA games at Google Video.

You can download the video to watch so that you will not have to have jerky playback.  You can find a sneak peak of the video at the National Archive website and on Google video website. I found it easier to browse on the National Archive website.
