Friday Free Stuff: News audiovisual archives

30 March 2012

The Australian network ABC have recently put up a collection of open archives with Creative Commons licensed material, including:Al Jazeera has a collection of more recent news videos, particularly good for stories about Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, and Gaza, but also with stories from other places. They also have photos on Flickr.

(Both the above are via Creative Commons Australia.)

And if you're interested in alternative ways of providing news, try Wikinews - a smaller project running on the same platform as Wikipedia - though the New Zealand portal is a little sparse!
