[NBC 5 & UNT Archive 2018 Sizzle Reel]

Description: This video is about how NBC 5 - Texas's first news station founded in 1948 when it was known as WBAP-TV - partnered up with University of North Texas Special Collections in 2014 to create an online news archive spanning the 70 years of the news station's existence. The NBC 5 archive is comprised of 16 mm film, UMatic, Betacam, DVC-PRO, and 2-inch quadruplex videotapes, negatives, slides, and photographs featuring the station's behind-the-scenes production, broadcast scripts, and research files. Archivists at UNT Special Collections are working to digitize and preserve this historic footage to make it available to the public via the Portal to Texas History.
