Film (Documentaries and More)

This is a guide for sources available for historians at Boston College targeted for professionals.

Documentaries on Historical Topics

This is a filmography to films--documentaries and feature films--on historical topics. Find documentary titles in the first list (on the left on a computer screen) and feature films (on the right). Note that films with links means BC has e-access. Films without a title-link means we would have to search for access. 

Write your subject liaison with any questions or concerns. 


A Note on Licensing for e-Access

When we purchase online access, we usually pay for a one or three year license, which means we have temporary access. Once our license expires, we can usually buy access again. We are happy to (try and) do so.
