Footage library Pond5 has launched what it bills as the world’s largest collection of licensable royalty free archival footage.

The new Pond5 Archival Collection spans historical moments and everyday life from the past 100 years.

All video in the Pond5 Archival Collection is available with a royalty-free license featuring worldwide usage in perpetuity. The content has all been digitally converted and restored, with the majority now available in high definition (HD).

Highlights from the collection include footage of World War II, the Space Race, and the 20th century’s most important world leaders. Also featured are clips acquired from European footage agency Framepool, ranging from historical moments to home video footage of daily life and activities from throughout the decade.

Pond5 CEO Jason Teichman said: “We are very proud to offer so many unique views into history, and this is just the latest step in making Pond5 the one-stop resource for all creative professionals.”
