Why Media Burn Matters: A video message from Tom and Sara

Dear Friend of Media Burn:

We are writing to you today because we know you share our enthusiasm for preserving and distributing one of the most important collections of historical documentaries anywhere, and we need you to make a tax-deductible contribution now:


In 2014, we will be celebrating ten years of mediaburn.org. Our online collection of freely-accessible documentary videos now exceeds 2500, which have been viewed more than 10 million times—a remarkable achievement! So as 2013 comes to a close, we look back over the years, not only to where Media Burn started, but also why it started, and why we believe in it.

In this video, Tom and Sara sit down to talk a little about the history of Media Burn and why our work here is so important.

You are an essential part of the work we do. Together, we’ve come a long way and accomplished a lot, but we need your help in order to keep our videos preserved and accessible online, and we still have numerous tapes in our collection which have yet to be digitized.

So please, help make it possible to provide people around the world with access to historical documentaries that educate and inspire in ways few other videos can.

Make your tax-deductible contribution now at:


Thanks for your ongoing support,

Tom Weinberg and Sara Chapman
and the staff of Media Burn
