University Archives - News and Public Affairs Videotape Directory

This directory lists news reports, promotional videos, and public information segments produced by the University of Florida's Office of News and Public Affairs and its predecessors. Many of the news reports were broadcast on WUFT-TV. The collection also includes regular special interest presentations such as the reports on Florida's economy.

The earliest News and Public Affairs Videos were recorded in 3/4" u-matic. Segments were often rerecorded on different tapes. No attempt was made to edit duplicate content when the tapes were reformatted by the Archives.

For some tapes, tape logs were available and the dates given are exact. In most cases, though, dates are approximations based on tape content.

The tapes listed here are only those transferred to the University Archives. For other and more recent materials, please contact the News and Public Affairs office.

Videos are available for viewing in the Special Collections Research Room on DVD. For production and archive purposes, each videotape has been reformatted to Betacam SP and MPEG2.

Please note that this directory only includes video productions created by the News and Public Affairs office and its predecessors. All other films and videos of the university are listed in the Moving Image Collections directory.
