EUscreen, a new online portal that launches today, provides access to thousands of TV clips from across Europe. It is a groundbreaking collaboration with 36 partners from 19 countries, including access to thousands of items of archive TV footage dating from the early 1900s until today. As well as providing new and exciting insights into Europe’s TV heritage, it also offers news footage and commentary on key events in history, including an interview with Martin Luther King from 1962 about racial discrimination in the US and his most recent arrest, and news footage from 1963 investigating whether the British are for or against joining the European Economic Community.
