New Animal Productions, a boutique production company, worked with our New York Documentary Team when producing, JFK: 3 Shots That Changed America—a two-part History® channel special about the Kennedy assassination and the speculation following his murder. The producers looked to our research experts to identify specific news content related to JFK and his assassination within the BBC and CBS News archives. Without a narrator, the producers placed the burden of storytelling squarely on the archive, trusting that the images themselves would tell the story. Since the four hour special was entirely comprised of archival video, the clips the producers ended up licensing from our BBC and CBS News collections were invaluable to the production.

Over the course of the last 5 years, Thought Equity Motion’s New York Documentary Team worked closely with South Hill Films—independent documentary production company—to find unique archival footage for the biography, Hubert H. Humphrey: The Art of The Possible. The documentary is slated to be syndicated through American Public Television (APT) on PBS in fall 2010. The film centers around Humphrey’s political life, the 1968 Presidential election, and the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which Humphrey played a large role in passing. The film’s director/producer licensed Civil Rights era and Vietnam War b-roll news footage from Thought Equity Motion’s CBS News collection to help tell the 38th Vice President of the United States’ life story. Hubert H. Humphrey: The Art of The Possible provides a detailed exploration of the 1964 Civil Right Act, and the archival content from our library helped make this possible.
