A Video Archive of Western New York 1960s TV News Footage Now Available Online
Imagine watching an old television newscast from when you were a kid. Now, it’s a reality for Western New Yorkers. The first batch of archival news footage digitized by the Buffalo Broadcasters Association is available online.
Local stories like the closing of Bethlehem Steel and the Attica uprising, as well as national stories of the civil rights movement are among the highlights of history in local TV news now available to see on the New York Heritage Website.
