CRWS's video archive consists of approximately 2,200 DVDs with content transferred from the videotape collection of People For the American Way (PFAW). PFAW recorded network and cable broadcasting throughout the 1980s, 90s and 2000s, widely documenting year-to-year developments among major figures and organizations of the right. Televangelist broadcasts occupy a good portion of the archive, including such television programs as Pat Robertson's 700 Club, The Old Time Gospel Hour, and Falwell Live, among others. In many instances the archive finding aid indicates the guests or issues covered on a particular show. The archive also includes speeches by important figures on the right (e.g. Ronald Reagan, Pat Buchanan); coverage of important Congressional proceedings (e.g. the Bork nomination); coverage of important conservative events (e.g., The Conservative Political Action Convention); and one-off productions on particular subjects by right-wing groups (e.g., Falwell's film on the Clintons, Circle of Power).
This page makes all primary source documents related to the Archive of Conservative Video Broadcasting available to researchers. These documents may be used to conduct additional text-based research that will supplement and complement video-based research. Researchers can also use this section to learn more about programming for which there is no video held in the archive. If you want to download all the pdfs, here is the Google Drive folder containing all of them.

These documents were compiled by PFAW staff based on that month's programming. In many cases they are summaries, rather than transcripts.
