    I have agreed to do a pro-bono job for a friend that is outside me normal
    experience. It appears that I will need some background footage from the
    60s and 70s... student demonstrations, political meetings, 68 Democratic
    convention, etc. With little budget how would you proceed?

    Try www.archive.org. I know there is some 60's related material, but
    I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for.

  5. Library of Congress. They have extensive historical footage library. They only
    charge for tape cost and dubbing fees. No licensing fees. They may be your
    least expensive option.
