The Paley Center for Media


Program Level Resources
Type of Service:

The Paley Center for Media has an international collection of over 160,000 programs from over 70 countries, covering almost 100 years of television and radio history, including news, public affairs programs and documentaries, performing arts programs, children’s programming, sports, comedy and variety shows, and commercial advertising. Programming from over seventy countries is represented in the collection. “Lost” radio and television programs recovered by The Paley Center for Media and preserved in the collection include Super Bowl III, a Rat Pack benefit variety show, and James Dean performances. Using programs from the collection as a means of illustration and investigation, Paley Center Educators lead sessions on a wide range of subjects such as advertising, the documentary form, and the civil rights movement. Inquiry-based classes are ninety minutes in length. They seek to build analytical thinking, viewing, and listening skills and attempt to provide insight into the roles television and radio play in our culture. All classes are aligned with and support the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts and Literacy, and the New York State Learning Standards for Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Visual Arts. Supporting educational materials for classroom use are available for most classes.
