A Video Archive of Western New York 1960s TV News Footage Now Available Online

From WBFO:

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. The footage is some of the earliest in the BBA’s collection of TV news reels spanning more than 50 years.


More archival footage will eventually be added to the New York heritage website. The first batch of digitized footage is available here.
