As part of an agreement with the BBC, Gale has acquired 2250 videos for inclusion in a variety of electronic databases. The videos feature professional narration, award-winning production values, and dynamic images, delving into a range of topics of interest to our users. Most of them are less than ten minutes long, providing focused coverage on a wide range of topics, and they appear inGale Researcher,the在上下文中family of products, and金宝搏彩票学术OneFile.

While a significant number of the videos cover contemporary events, just as importantly, many of them focus on people and events that are expected to be covered as part of national and state curriculum standards in the classroom. InU.S. History In Context,视频“斯科特把他争取自由的美国最高法院”讨论了法官,其中许多人在当时的奴隶主门前认为偏光1857年的法律案件。斯科特是无法获得的情况下,他的自由。视频的旁白提供有关美国,之前的内战怎么样,还没有准备好,以杜绝奴役上下文。
