HBO Archives Announces "Crusade in the Pacific" Series Available for Clip Licensing

Publish date:

HBO Archives®, which launched in 2002, announces that the complete 26 episodes of The March of Time's awarding winning series, "Crusade in the Pacific," have been restored, cataloged and transferred to HD and are now available for footage clip licensing.  The March of Time is the groundbreaking newsreel and documentary series produced by Time Inc. from 1935 to 1967.  "Crusade in the Pacific" was produced for television and was nationally syndicated in 1951. The series used footage shot by The March of Time cameramen to recount events in the Pacific from the 1931 Japanese seizure of Manchuria through the Korean War. "The restoration project is timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the Pearl Harbor invasion," explains Barbara Thomas, Senior Vice President, HBO Sports®. "Thankfully we had well-preserved, original 35mm film to work with. All 26 programs have been converted to High Definition Video.  This series is priceless for all of today’s storytellers."       Since re-introducing the March of Time in 2007, HBO Archives has been busy cataloging, restoring, and transferring the original theatrical newsreels. "The March of Time was much more than monthly newsreels," adds Thomas.  "The March of Time produced a number of feature-length films and with the advent of the television era, produced entertainment and political programs specifically for TV.  The March of Time production teams were also commissioned to produce a wide variety of government and corporate-sponsored commercial films.  HBO Archives is excited to begin showcasing the depth of the collection with the Crusade in the Pacific mini-series."            Clips from select episodes of the "Crusade in the Pacific" mini-series are now online for instant access to researchers. Other March of Time productions, ranging from the 1930s to the 1960s, are also currently available online and feature such diverse topics as political election maneuvering, teenage girls, the football business, the oil and tobacco industries, Mormonism and iconic American cities like New Orleans. Honored with more than 150 major awards, HBO has long been known for its uncompromising commitment to quality and innovation in live event programming, journalism and long-form storytelling.  HBO Archives is a full-service stock footage library for commercial/professional use.  In addition to The March of Time collection, it offers sports, contemporary stock, entertainment news and royalty-free wildlife footage.  The wide-ranging footage is culled from material shot by HBO’s producers around the globe for more than three decades.  These impressive collections are available for licensing directly through HBO Archives.             High-speed searching, clip preview and download, and access to tens of thousands of clips can be found through the stock footage portal at
