The Archive of American Television in North Hollywood, Calif., has been expanding its online presence on YouTube, offering some 1,900 video clips and 950 hours of content from the archive’s oral history library, the Los Angeles Times reports. The online database allows viewers from around the world to see the library, the newspaper says. Subjects are chosen by a committee for for inclusion in the archive; they then participate in a videotaped interview that is edited to a 30-minute segment, according to the L.A. Times.

  1. Thanks for the post. Just want to clarify that the interviews are not “edited to a 30-minute segment”, they are posted in 30-minute segments (the length of the tape load) — most full interviews last between 2 and 5 hours. This amazing collection can be viewed on the Archive’s YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/tvlegends
