The Global Reporting Archive

The Global Reporting Archive is a collection of videos from major journalism projects produced by UBC journalism students in countries around the world.

The UBC School of Journalism, Writing, and Media has collected hundreds of hours of video from around the world for free and non-commercial use. The material was produced and collected in the field over the past decade by our students as part of the International Reporting Program. 

Over more than a decade, the program has produced major journalism projects focussed around a specific issue or topic, such as e-waste, food safety and security, palliative health care and pharmaceuticals, struggles over land, and illegal logging. These archives include videos from countries including Brazil, Chile, China, Ghana, India, Indonesia, Russia, Thailand, and Uganda, amongst others.

The material is freely available for use by media organizations, video producers or students, for any journalistic or academic use, including for documentaries, news broadcasts, teaching, and research.

A selection of videos is available to download from Vimeo.

The entire catalog of raw material is also available, including full interviews and hundreds of hours of video. Access to the catalog is available upon request.
