History Channel: Audio and Video

It’s perhaps a bit of a stretch of the imagination to think of a place that would include both a clip of Spiro Agnew speaking out on what he perceived to be the biases of television news coverage and some archival footage of Depression-era gangsters, but it’s all right here on the History Channel’s Audio and Video online archive. The speech archive is quite nice, and may prove to be both edifying and entertaining. Visitors can browse the speech archive by topics (such as War & Diplomacy) or alphabetically. Some of the clips offered here include comments by the scientist Wernher von Braun after hearing that the U.S.S.R had landed a spacecraft on the moon. The video clip section is also quite well-developed, as it contains clips of the trial of Adolf Eichmann and the breaking of the sound barrier.
