Finding TV Program Videos in ALICE

The library may have videorecordings of individual programs in its collections, or, we may be able to facilitate borrowing from other institutions.

  • ALICE Catalog
    Search the ALICE catalog by Title for a specific program name such as 60 Minutes or 20/20. Click the Repeat search in OhioLINK button to expand your search to over 80 OhioLINK libraries.
  • Television News Archive, Vanderbilt University  
    Index to summaries of news broadcasts from major U.S. networks (ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, PBS, CSPAN, MSNBC, CNBC and Fox) dating back to 1968. Many broadcasts are now available as free streaming video. Tapes of news programs may be borrowed via Interlibrary Loan (click "i" above for info).

TV Broadcast Transcripts

Transcripts from selected recent television broadcasts can be found in several subscription databases such as Lexis Nexis or Factiva (see list in the next box below).

One thing to keep in mind is that no one database will have every show from a particular network. For example, you may have to search a couple of databases that contain CBS transcripts before you find the one that has the program Face the Nation.
