Academy of Television Arts & Sciences: "Welcome to the
Archive of American Television�
The Archive of American Television strives to preserve the rich history of television by videotaping interviews with the individuals who pioneered the medium.
We have rare, in-depth interviews with those behind the scenes as well as television's biggest stars including: news legends WALTER CRONKITE, DON HEWITT, and DAVID BRINKLEY, actors ALAN ALDA, OSSIE DAVIS, and MARY TYLER MOORE, writer/producers NORMAN LEAR, CARL REINER, and AARON SPELLING, and executives FRED SILVERMAN, SUMNER REDSTONE, and TED TURNER.
By utilizing cutting-edge technology, this Archive will be a digital encyclopedia of television, accessible worldwide by students, historians, and the public. In fact, the Archive has covered virtually every social, economic and cultural events of the 20th Century, which will be used to educate and inspire future generations.
Award winning producer-executives Grant A. Tinker, David L. Wolper, Dean Valentine, and Television Academy Foundation Chair Emeritus Thomas W. Sarnoff are guiding the project's success."
