Internet Archive ontsluit 3000 uur televisienieuws over 9/11

26 augustus 2011

Het is een mooi initiatief, van onze vrienden van Internet Archive: op Understanding 9/11, a Television News Archive hebben zij 3000 uur aan televisieuitzendingen over 11 september 2001 verzameld en ontsloten in tijdlijnen. Zoals het archief het zelf omschrijft:

The 9/11 Television News Archive is a library of news coverage of the events of 9/11/2001 and their aftermath as presented by U.S. and international broadcasters. A resource for scholars, journalists, and the public, it presents one week of news broadcasts for study, research and analysis.
Television is our pre-eminent medium of information, entertainment and persuasion, but until now it has not been a medium of record. This Archive attempts to address this gap by making TV news coverage of this critical week in September 2001 available to those studying these events and their treatment in the media.
