SBS Archive

SBS holds a unique collection of television and radio content, with a particular focus on multicultural and indigenous subject matter. SBS radio commenced transmission in 1975, and television in 1980, for this reason our collection is relatively young, and we are not able to supply material earlier than this period. While SBS produces content for news, current affairs and indigenous content, we also heavily rely on our external suppliers for much of our international and local content, therefore clients should be aware that material screened on SBS may not be available for sale.  This will particularly apply to international breaking events.

If you would like to make a footage inquiry please email sales at
