Meet the Press Archive Available for a Limited Time
The Library is now offering online access to Meet the Press, the longest-running show on network TV. More than 1,500 hours of footage from the weekly news program are available for streaming online, including many episodes not seen since their original broadcast.
Meet the Press premiered on NBC on November 6, 1947 and has since become an institution in broadcast journalism. Each episode features interviews with national and world leaders on the pressing issues of the day. Foreign policy has always been a staple of Meet the Press and the available footage includes landmark interviews with world leaders such as Fidel Castro, Indira Gandhi, Yassar Arafat, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair. These interviews provide a treasure trove of material for students and faculty.
