FEATURED RESOURCE: No-Do (Noticiarios y documentales cinematográficos 1943 - 1981)

This impressive collection makes newsreels from Franco's state-run channel freely available online.

"El No-Do (Noticiarios y Documentales), se creó el día 29 de septiembre de 1942 por la dictadura del General Francisco Franco como un servicio de difusión de noticiarios y reportajes de obligatoria exhibición en los cines de España, posesiones y colonias. Este noticiario servía por un lado de aparato de propaganda del franquismo y por otro de hilo de unión de los españoles con el mundo. Su primera proyección tuvo lugar el 4 de enero de 1943 y así se mantuvo hasta que, en 1975, dejó de ser obligatorio. La producción cesó en 1981. En diciembre de 2012 RTVE.ES y Filtomoteca abren estos documentos excepcionales de la historia de la transformación de España a su consulta libre en Internet."
