In addition CONUS just acquired hundreds of historic films making up the personal collection of a renowned classic travel photographer, which have been digitally transferred from 16mm film. This footage provides you with a close up look at places and their people as they were from the 1940s through the 1960s, across the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
CONUS has also added new High Definition footage to its vast existing collection of underwater imagery, taking you to the Great Barrier Reef and highlighting the amazing array of marine creatures living in this underwater world.
These additions to the CONUS Archive are now available digitally, along with thousands of other clips as CONUS continues to digitize its entire collection of footage.
