    NEW YORK, NY, May 14, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- HBO Archives announced today that for the first time ever, clip licensing will be available from the completely restored 26 episode educational documentary series "Life Around Us," the groundbreaking series produced by Time-Life Films from 1968-1971.

This series explored a wide range of issues in the natural and social sciences from all around the globe. Many of the topics covered, including climate change, developmental psychology of children, whaling and invasive species remain relevant today.

Footage includes both story-specific footage, as well as moment-in-time scenes of everyday life in the late 1960s. "The Ultimate Machine?" includes footage of advances in robotics at MIT alongside iconic imagery of computers in the workplace. "Rock-A-Bye Baby," which screened at the White House in 1970, explores the sometimes devastating influence of infant treatment and child rearing. Other episodes feature in-depth looks at topics including scientific studies in Antarctica, animal communication, water conservation, deforestation and solar research.

Period scenic shots and moment-in-time footage from such locations as Panama, Southern France, the Sonoran Desert and Egypt are also now available.

All of the footage from the series had been transferred from film to HD. "It has been a priority of HBO Archives to make our film backed elements available in HD so clips can be seamlessly integrated into new productions and we are excited that this special material is now available," said Michael Castro, Vice President, Post Delivery.

The entire series has been cataloged and digitized and can be searched and previewed on the HBO Archives website. The uniqueness of the content lends itself to many uses including playback, editorial, commercial and educational.

HBO Archives is a full-service stock footage library for commercial/professional use. In addition to "Life Around Us" collections, it offers "The March of Time " Newsreels and Documentaries, archival, sports, contemporary stock, entertainment news and wildlife footage. The wide-ranging footage is culled from material from around the globe for more than three decades shot by HBO Sports, HBO Original Series, HBO Films, HBO Mini-Series, HBO Creative Services and Time-Life Films. These impressive collections are available for licensing directly through HBO Archives.
