This is so cool I’m wriggling with glee on my sofa as I write the post — Alexander Street Press is letting e-Views’ readers brief trial The March of Time¬Æ film series, which they’ve recently made available in online streaming video in a single, cross-searchable collection (for more background check out this Wikipedia article about the series). These videos have been restored by HBO Archives, allowing present-day viewers the opportunity to view these newsreels and films as audiences did during the early- to mid-twentieth century. The series is available via annual subscription or one-time purchase, and requires no special software or setup, just access to the Internet and a browser.
To access The March of Time¬Æ just go to: http://moto.alexanderstreet.com and use the following logins:
This free trial is good until June 8, 2012, so do enjoy it till then. My thanks to Audrey DeGregorio of Alexander Street Press for setting this trial up.
More as it happens,
