Goddard TV Tape Catalogue

Goddard Television's vision is to produce and communicate knowledge about our study of the Earth and Space; sharing NASA and Goddard, its missions, programs, discoveries, experts, and facilities with 245 million Americans and other TV viewers around the globe. We take our news and contributions to society beyond the campus gates and into people's homes so they can participate, share in, and benefit from Goddard's exploration and understanding of the Earth and Space.

Video Releases will contain up-to-date information on our most current video files available on NTV. This section of the site is still under construction and not available at this time.

NASA TV Programming Schedule covers the following:

  • Late Breaking News
  • Space Shuttle Missions
  • NTV Video File
  • NASA TV Gallery
  • Education File
  • Earth Views
Experience Goddard at its best: "unlimited exploration of the Earth and beyond"

About the Videotapes:

Each tape has been assigned a Goddard-unique library number such as G99-001. Please use that number when referring to Goddard tapes. The video material contained in this catalog is broken into sections containing resource material, press conferences and finished productions.

Resource Video -The vast majority of the videotapes available in this catalog are considered resource video and are primarily intended to be used as source material for television and audio visual productions.

Note that resource videos are NOT finished productions and contains no narration. Resource video generally contains descriptive slates and contact information.

Press Conferences - are recommended for audiences with a scientific background and interest in a specific area of research; and is not suitable for general audiences. Contains narration.

Finished Productions - are for general audiences and is primarily suitable for educator's and the public who is interested in science. Contains narration, music and natural sound.
