The Television Archive is a 501(c)(3) public nonprofit that was founded to build a "television library" of the events of September 11, 2001 with the purpose of offering permanent access for researchers, historians, and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format.
Meet the Press from Alexander Street Press opens up a wealth of information to libraries by making over 1,500 hours of footage—the full surviving broadcast run to date—available online in one cross-searchable interface. Since its television premiere in 1947, Meet the Press has cemented its position as an institution in broadcast journalism. For the first time ever, network television’s longest running program—with its thousands of interviews, panels, and debates—is available via streaming online video. Now, students and scholars have unprecedented access to this treasure trove of material, including many episodes not seen since their original broadcast.
