Larry makes a good point – video is perhaps the most ephemeral of all media. Finding old clips is near impossible. I very much hope this will change.

    I was at the MMKM kickoff meeting two years ago, and at this gathering a representative from the BBC offered to these research communities open access to 50 years of digital BBC video archives, for research purposes.

    While Google/Tube is focused primarily on distributing and wrapping advertising around video, there are all these other groups actually doing research into searching video.. making it perhaps a little less ephemeral than it currently is.

    I’d think one could automate a voice recognition to transcript process? But I see no sign that is being done.

    While I’m sure it’s not the only way to find the info, could you not find a transcript or at least a rough transcript from a text search of news sources around that time?
