<a href="">Meet the Press, 1947-2013</a>

The Meet the Press collection opens up a wealth of information to libraries by making 1,500 hours of footage—nearly the full broadcast run to date—available online. Transcriptions of all spoken words allows keyword searching across the entire collection. Examine how coverage of immigration reform has evolved from the 1980s through 2012, find clear film examples of how media portrayed women and African Americans in the 40s and 50s, and view television’s first live satellite interview—held in 1965 with British Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
