About Research Video

Research Video possesses the entertainment industry's most extensive footage licensing library of music and comedy performances, as well as a broad selection of celebrity interviews, with first and early appearances by many of today's major stars.

With a vast collection of videotape and film, the archives of Research Video span the 1940s through the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and 1990s. We offer thousands of rare items not found anywhere else. Among the unique material is early color videotape (dating from the late 1950s and early 1960s) of dozens of entertainers.

The Research Video vaults encompass every genre of music footage; rock 'n' roll, pop, rhythm and blues, jazz, country, disco, swing, folk, classical, opera and more. Personality interviews are also available -- including athletic, political and literary figures. In addition, Research Video offers a wide variety of stand-up comedy performances and skits. The staff of experts at Research Video also maintain a vast private reference library devoted to the television industry, containing history books, periodicals, listings, program breakdowns and other invaluable, one-of-a-kind materials.
