Preservation Fund

Please help us preserve television history!

The Interviews: An Oral History of Television is one of the Television Academy Foundation's signature education programs, dedicated to preserving first-hand accounts of television's history, artistry, and impact on American life. The Foundation began recording intimate and insightful conversations with television's early trailblazers in 1996, before the stories of those generations were lost. Since then, we have conducted and curated more than 900 one-of-a-kind oral history interviews with television pioneers and visionaries across multiple professions. The Interviews is available free of charge at

Your support will ensure that this precious resource serves generations to come!
