Reuters recently announced a partnership with ITN Source to make historical archive footage far more accessible. The Reuters video archive is making hundreds of thousands of rare and largely unseen news clips digitally available for preview and licensing on itnsource.com. To date, over 115,000 Reuters clips have been digitised and published, expanding the Reuters digital archive to nearly half a million clips and counting. Footage being digitised consists of the Reuters News syndication service from 1957 to 2006 and earlier cinema newsreels from 1910 to 1959. Material from 2006 onward is already available in digital format. The project is set to finish in 2016.
