The American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) is a project and research resource (free) that we love and that you should know about (if you don’t already).
Today, news that this resource now provides access to over 17,000 historic public broadcasting programs that you can watch/listen to ONLINE via the AAPB Online Reading Room.
This AAPB blog post shares a few highlights from some of what was recently added to the collection along with a list of the broadcasting organizations providing content.
What Else is Available (via FAQ)?
