The Associated Press and partner British Movietone have made 120 years of historical news footage available online for the first time ever by uploading 550,000 YouTube videos.
That adds up to over one million minutes of footage.
On the AP’s new Youtube Channel and the British Movietone Channel, people now have instant access to footage of some of the most pivotal moments in modern history, including news footage of the bombing of Pearl Harbour, the kidnapping of the Lindbergh baby, and the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., as well as videos of the Titanic leaving an Irish port, the stock market crash of 1929, and the the bombing of Hiroshima.
The Washington Post reports that before putting this footage on Youtube, most of it was only available to be seen in historical archives or museums.
Here are 17 of the best videos released by the AP:
