The world's most extensive and complete archive of television news. Vanderbilt has been recording, preserving and providing access to television news broadcasts of the national networks since August 5, 1968. Vanderbilt offers streaming clips from NBC and CNN only. The database search also helps find clips from FNC, ABC and CBS - but they must be paid for individually (by the researcher) then a hard copy will be sent of selected clips.

The collection spans the presidential administrations of Lyndon Baines Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The core collection includes evening news from ABC, CBS, and NBC (since 1968), an hour per day of CNN (since 1995) and Fox News (since 2004).
