De Gaulle and Television - Video Materials

Video sources for de Gaulle's media performances may be accessed EITHER through DVD's OR through the web platform of the Institut National de l'Audiovisuel (INA). The INA platform (particularly the 'Charles de Gaulle - Paroles Publiques' feature') provides the most useful pedagogical and research tool for students, though DVDs provide better image quality.
