NEW DATABASE: Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports, 1974 - 1996

We now have access to the full-text of the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports, 1974 - 1996...

"FBIS is a collection of translated foreign broadcasts and news... (and) has been the United States' principal record of political and historical open source intelligence for nearly 75 years. The original mission of the FBIS was to monitor, record, transcribe and translate intercepted radio broadcasts from foreign governments, official news services, and clandestine broadcasts from occupied territories. Many of these materials are first-hand reports of events as they occurred. As such, the FBIS Daily Reports constitutes a one-of-a-kind archive of transcripts of foreign broadcasts and news that provides fascinating insight into the second half of the 20th century."

Currently FIU only has access to the the "Middle East and Africa (1980-87)" and Middle East and North Africa (1974-80)" Series.
