An archive of (nearly) every 120 Minutes (and its successor Subterranean) playlist.
The 120 Minutes archive includes playlists for 585 episodes of MTV's seminal alternative rock show and its successor, Subterranean, spanning 1986-2007. The archive includes links to video search for each track played, interviews
with those behind the program, a history
of its development and demise, and the full video of the series finale
. Looking at some of the early episodes
, should be enough to crush you under a wave of nostalgia and longing for the days when MTV was what it says on the tin.
The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has put 675 reels of archival 16 mm film online
via the Internet Archive. Most of the film is unedited, and stems either from Museum research, or was donated by interested amateurs. Much of it is silent, reflecting the technology of the day. One highlight are the four surviving reels
of the long-running TV show 'What in the World" (look for the episode starring Vincent Price), but the archive is full of other hidden gems, such as the 1950s archaeological expedition to Tikal
, a 1940 film "A 1000 Mile Road Trip Across America
", and Glimpses of Life Among the Catawba and Cherokee Indians of the Carolinas (1927).
The films are downloadable in various formats, including MPEG2, Ogg Video, and 512Kb MPEG4. Happy browsing! via.
A great gallery of tickets to TV show tapings, some going back to the 1950s. Includes some fascinating commentary by Mark Evanier.
