For over 45 years, TVO has been a leader in educational media, chronicling politics, science, technology, education, and the arts in Ontario, and beyond. TVO’s Public Archive brings Ontarians content that defines our province with a selection of videos from our past that represents the best in high quality educational media.
TVO is working to digitize archived content, to make these works more accessible and to preserve them for the future. Much of TVO’s historic content exists on legacy film and video tape formats such as 1” and 2” tapes, film reels, and the process to convert to digital formats is lengthy. As we continue to digitize and document decades of legacy content, TVO is working to assess the practicality of clearing associated licensing rights for use in our online Public Archive.
