Films on Demand

Videos scheduled for removal in 2014

Films on Demand has more than 15,000 fascinating documentaries, interviews, performances, archival collections, and other streaming videos—many with searchable transcripts—spanning every academic discipline. This exceptional database is free to all members of the KU community, and many recent enhancements have further magnified its value as a teaching tool.

The 101 films below are set to disappear as PBS and the vendor lose the streaming rights. Each title is available until the date shown beside it.
