Much of the footage in the AP and British Movietone archives is under two minutes. The short clips could be good as supporting material to add to a reference page for students. In general, students will need the larger historical context in order to appreciate the video clips.

With more than 1.7 million stories within the database, covering everything from fashion and lifestyle to sport and the natural world, AP Archive can provide the video footage needed for projects or production.
