From the Louisiana Digital Media Archive site which was launched last month:

Welcome to the Louisiana Digital Media Archive (LDMA), the home of the Louisiana Public Broadcasting Digital Collection and the Louisiana State Archives Multimedia Collection. This is the first project in the nation to combine the media collections of a public broadcaster and a state archives.
So, what will you find here? This ever-expanding site contains a combined catalog of thousands of hours of media recorded over the past half-century.  You can see interviews with Louisiana civil rights pioneers, notable political figures, war heroes, artists and literary icons. You’ll have a front row seat to Louisiana history through video of historic events. You can also visit remote and endangered Louisiana places and cultures.  This history is at your fingertips through the LDMA.  We will be continually adding new content, so come back often!"

Happy ancestor hunting.
