The LibraryÂ is happy to announce the launch of more than 100 new PBS videos available now through theÂ NC LIVE Video Collection, including the complete 14-part award-winning Civil Rights Era documentary, Eyes on the Prize.
The new videos also include the popular Ken Burnsâ€™ series The National Parks: Americaâ€™s Best Idea, and Masterpiece Theater titles including Wuthering Heights, Turn of the Screw, Wind in the Willows, Anna Karenina, and many more.
NC LIVE received a LSTA grant from the State Library of North Carolina and the Department of Cultural Resources to purchase the PBS videos. A partnership between NC LIVE and the Department of Public Instruction extends the reach of the online video collection to all k-12 public schools, where teachers and students can stream the videos in classrooms across the state.
In addition to the nearly 100 new PBS videos added, NC LIVE is also making availableÂ a collection of local oral history documentariesÂ produced in Wilkes County, NC. Previously only available to watch on DVD in the library at Wilkes Community College, these high-quality documentaries about the people of Wilkes County are now available to watch in your home or classroom, anytime. The videos were created by the Save Our Wilkes County History Committee to document, explore, and preserve the countyâ€™s past.
