TV Acad channels archives to Google

Archive of American TV now available for users to view for free

The Academy of TV Arts & Sciences Foundation has pacted with Google to create an online home for its growing archives.

The org’s Archive of American Television, which includes hundreds of hours of interviews with TV pioneers, will now be available for users to view for free at Google Video.

“They were looking for more video content, and we were looking to find a way to get the archives out there and make it available to the world in general,” said ATAS Foundation chairman Steve Mosko. “It’s an interesting play for the foundation. We want to make these interviews as accessible as possible.”

Google Video has already posted 75 videos — repping 240 viewing hours — on its site, and altogether has 284 films at its disposal.

The interviews include performers such as Alan Alda, Andy Griffith and Dick Van Dyke; producers including Norman Lear, Dick Wolf, Grant Tinker and Carl Reiner; directors like James Burrows; and execs such as Ted Turner.

“We’re demonstrating how the Web can help to distribute all kinds of content that may not have otherwise been widely available,” said Susan Wojcicki, Google Video’s vice prexy of product management.

Mosko said the arrangement with Google was “just the tip of the iceberg,” and the foundation hoped to explore other opportunities with the company, such as broadening the scope of the org’s College TV Awards.
