EUscreen

Overview

Date coverage: 1900 - 2021 Website Contact

The EUscreen portal offers free online access to thousands of items of audiovisual heritage. It brings together clips that provide an insight into the social, cultural, political and economic events that have shaped the 20th and 21st centuries. As well as chronicling important historical events, the EUscreen portal allows you to explore television programmes that focus on everyday experience. EUscreen is also intended to be a resource for educators, researchers and media professionals searching for new audiovisual content from across Europe.

The main objective of the project is to aggregate a comprehensive amount of professional audiovisual content. A large number of clips and programmes have been selected by broadcasters and archives from all across Europe.

The aim is to engage people with audiovisual heritage content and facilitate the use of videos, photos, audio and images. In the EUscreen project, virtual exhibitions were created in oder to contextualize the collection items. The EUscreenXL project continues this work by further developing MyEUscreen. You can follow our ongoing work at the EUscreen blog.
