Are you a TV geek? The president of Sony Pictures Television is and has announced via the Official Google Blog an arrangement with Google Video to open up the Archive of American Television.

Sony’s Steve Mosko lamented that the archive, with over 450 interviews of American TV legends, was only accessible from its birthplace in southern California.

“If a student at a school in Cincinnati or Bangkok wanted to learn more about the history of creative or business aspects of the American television industry, these interviews were just not accessible. So I made it a personal goal to find a way to get the Archive online,” writes Mosko.

And so it appears he has reached his goal through an arrangement with Google Video. The interviews are now available complete and uncut though Google’s video search engine.

You’ll recognize the names for sure. Legends like Norman Lear, Ted Turner, Sid Caesar, Michael J. Fox, and Mrs. Brady herself, Florence Henderson, are available for browsing.

Mosko says the archive was created to educate, entertain, and inspire future generations of TV junkies. Besides interviews, news events and celebrity information is also available.
