News Databases

Televised and Radio News Transcripts

The Factiva database contains televised and radio broadcast transcripts from a variety of stations, including ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, Fox, BBC, NPR and PBS.

To search transcripts, enter the database. Select "Source" from the left hand search bar, then select "Publications by Type" from the "Select Source Category" drop-down menu.

Click the blue arrow next to the transcript you want to search. This will paste the code for that broadcast into the search box above. You may want to change the default date for the search (it will automatically search for the past 3 months unless changed). Clicking search will display all transcripts, or you can add your keywords at that point (remember to separate them with "AND")

You may see a screen showing no results, because the Multimedia tab displays first: Make sure you click on the tab for "Publications"
