The catalog includes a monumental 550,000 digitized archival clips, equating to more than a million minutes of footage. Those interested can search through them, as a sort of visual encyclopedia on the AP Archive Youtube channel. The channel features a deluge of footage of major historical events, from the earthquake in San Francisco in 1906, to the Pearl Harbor bombing; as well as celebrity footage through the decades — everyone from Audrey Hepburn to Elvis to Amy Winehouse gets a nod. – Christine Persaud, Digital Trends
