News footage (November-December 1978)

An hour-long compilation of NBC footage – primarily scenes from Jonestown that NBC cameraman Bob Brown filmed, but also including some early scenes from the military’s walk-through of Jonestown afterwards – appears as the first clip at There is a great deal of material not previously released, almost all of it of the living people of Jonestown. There are also some omissions, such as most of the footage from the airstrip (including the few seconds from the shootings themselves), plus the entirety of the interview between Don Harris and Jim Jones, as well as the film from Congressman Leo Ryan’s first few days in Georgetown. But the clarity of the film and the vibrancy of the colors puts a human dimension on the tragedy which is unique and irreplaceable.

Raw Footage

Much of the “home movies,” Brownie-8 films, old videos, and other amateur motion pictures of Peoples Temple life, both inside and outside the sanctuary of the church, has been lost. A number of videos filmed by members of Peoples Temple – both in California and Jonestown – may be accessed through the Internet Archive site. (A larger collection of videos also available through that site includes post-tragedy interviews, programs and podcasts.) Additional footage from Jonestown itself may be found through the California Historical Society page on the Internet Archive.

A compilation of stock footage – most of it available for purchase – is at It consists primarily of newsreel footage and interviews from the week prior to the deaths in Jonestown and in the aftermath of the tragedy.
