YTTM: YouTube Time Machine (Gr. 6-12)
YTTM is an interesting spin on sorting through the vast archive of videos available from YouTube. Use the timeline provided at the top of the page to select a year you wish to investigate. The site will then randomly display a video from the time period. Use the filters to the right of the video window to narrow the pool of videos the site pulls from.
- Note that this site is still in alpha mode and therefore you may encounter bugs or glitches when using the site.
- If you find a video you’d like to keep or refer back to later, use the “Share Video” link beneath the video pane to grab the direct URL for the video.
Below is a commercial for Burger King in 1978:
