About this collection
Established in 1982, the TV Archive preserves over 4000 hours of newsfilm, documentaries and other programs produced locally in the Bay Area and Northern California between 1939-2005. We are part of the J. Paul Leonard Library's Department of Special Collections. Please note: users may not download the compressed MPEG-4 video files in DIVA, due to copyright restrictions. Contact resident film archivist Alex Cherian if you require access to higher quality master footage (Email: email@example.com / Tel: 415-405-5565).
