ITN Source, the footage licensing arm of ITN, has launched a new archive collection called On This Day in History.

Footage contained in the collection spans the archives represented by ITN Source including the ITN, ITV, Reuters and Fox Movietone archives.

“Daily anniversaries and historical events have long been listed and marked by newspapers and other news sources,” said ITN Source head of business development Dan Mills.

“On This Day in History enhances this concept by compiling rich archive footage that websites, education publishers, broadcasters and many others can integrate with their existing content.

“Whether it’s a history-making event, news about the rich and famous, or something quirky – this product will enable a multitude of publishers to have engaging, factual and informative footage 365 days a year.”

The collection is being made available for license to education, lifestyle and news publishers for online, mobile or TV output.
