Please note, the Texas Archive of the Moving Image will be closed from November 21 to 29 for the Thanksgiving holiday.
The Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) is an independent, educational non-profit organization, not a stock footage house. We work extensively to discover, preserve, and provide access to Texas film and videotape that would otherwise be lost through decomposition or neglect. Our ever-growing online library features thousands of moving images, including home movies, amateur films, advertisements, local television, industrial films, and more.
Browse the KPRC Tape Inventory
TAMI has an extensive collection of newscasts from KPRC-TV in Houston. Although not all of the items are currently digitized, an incomplete inventory list of digitized videotapes covering the 1980s to the early 2000s is available for research and licensing requests. More information is available here.
