Olympic Films and Documentaries

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

Olympics on Film

This page provides a list of documentaries about the various Olympics and Olympic Games. This list is not comprehensive but rather represents a combination of some of the major titles and Boston College content. Titles with hyperlinks should take you to the full film. Otherwise, hyperlinks in the abstract might take you to official trailers or catalog records for a disk. 

The column on the left includes documentaries and the column on the right includes titles to feature films and television shows.
