Sir Trevor McDonald reporting on the Edinburgh conversation between Soviet, British and US military officials in 1983Great news, after a Herculean effort digitising a ridiculous number of hours  of news footage (3000 to be precise) the newsfilm online project has made the full ITN/Reuters archive live and available to all LSE teachers.  You’ll find all the usual famous news clips from ITN and Reuters plus  some very obscure clips dating all the way back to the 1st of January 1910 (footage of German military action if you’re interested). If you are on the LSE campus simply login using the direct access button. If you’re off campus you need to login via the UK Federation button.

Please contact us at CLT if you would like to make use of any of these clips in your teaching.  We can provide advice on how best to present video in your Moodle course or how to include them in your PowerPoint slides for class teaching. You can e-mail us at or phone extension 7833.
