“For the first time in its history BBC News is opening its archives to the UK public for a trial period. You can download nearly 80 news reports covering iconic events of the past 50 years including the fall of the Berlin Wall, crowds ejecting soldiers from Beijing’s Tiananmen Square and behind-the-scenes footage of the England team prior to their victory over West Germany in 1966.”

Apparently you have to be in the UK to use the service, however I am sure that there are going to be ways around this.
