In 1935 a Black and White film was made
of the Tell en-Nasbeh excavations, local Palestinian customs, and
views in and about Jerusalem. In the 1980s this film was
transferred to VHS video tape. With the kind permission of the Badè Institute of Biblical
Archaeology a series of .mpg video clips were captured from a
copy of the tape. The links below lead to nine of these clips.
There are two methods of viewing the clips.
1. With a
"plug-in" application. This is a program which loads
the video image into your computer, plays it, but does not copy
it to your system permanently. Many web browsers now come with
plug-ins to allow such video play. If you follow one of the
links, and do not have an appropriate .mpg plug-in, the page will
load (possibly with a warning about not being able to play the
video files) and display the video clip as a broken link or torn
page. If your system does not currently have a plug-in and you
would like to view these clips in your browser follow this link (Plug-in) to a page which contains links
to applications for playing a variety of media (for these clips
follow the Audio/Video link)
2. With a
"helper" application. This is a separate program that
will play the video once it has been transferred to your system.
By clicking on the link below the video clip you will begin this
download process. Many systems now come with media players
already installed. If your system does not have an appropriate
.mpg player a little searching on the web should turn one up.
