New Videos Up from Digitize on Demand Program

The Boston TV News Digital Library is excited to share our first set of videos that have been digitized through our Digitization on Demand program. The 38 videos we’ve just added to the site (which you can view through the links below) have all been digitized because our users had a particular interest in seeing the content. Several of our users have been generous enough to sponsor the digitization of the content they’re interested in. Once we digitized these items, most of the footage turned out to be what we expected, although a few of them just happened to be in the same can as the film we were digitizing.

An especially exciting new video is this coverage of a John F. Kennedy speech. This black and white footage from 1963 starts out with silent footage of a Democratic Party fundraiser at the Commonwealth Armory, and then features a speech by President Kennedy at the fundraiser.
