Archive of American Television

For years now, Academy of Television Arts and Science’s  Archive of American Television project has been taping in-depth, four-to-six hour interviews with the writers, producers, directors, actors, and executives who have made a lasting impact on the television medium… people like Grant Tinker, James Arness, Fred Silverman, Norman Lear, Stephen J. Cannell, Roy Huggins, Mike Wallace, Norman Felton, Dick Van Dyke, Sherwood Schwartz, Bob Newhart, Carroll O’Connor, Jim McKay, Carl Reiner, Joseph Barbera, Stephen Bochco, Julia Child, Phil Donahue, Robert Guillaume, Alan Alda, Fred Rogers, Larry Hagman,Ed Bradley, Jonathan Winters, Leonard Stern, Delbert Mann, James Garner, and William Shatner to name just a few. Many of those interviews are now available to view for free on Google. This is a tremendous resource, of which I have been a proud contributor and interviewer, and I highly recommend it to any student of television.
