Film rosters for each reference videotape are cross-referenced to descriptive film entries listed in chronological order by date of the recorded event. The six-digit entry number (GCMRL Code) stands for year, month, day (all entries are twentieth-century items). General Marshall's trip to Normandy on June 12, 1944, is therefore listed as 44.06.12; his trip to France in October 1944 is 44.10.00; and the Yalta Conference of February 1945 is listed as 45.02.00. The film entry includes the title, producer (series), film date, duration, a brief description, and the National Archives and Records Administration Record Group (NARA/RG) number. The Hearst newsreel entries include the UCLA control number. Many of the films listed here are in the public domain; however, it is the responsibility of the researcher to determine copyright status. Signal Corps films are usually in the public domain. While the March of Time outtakes are in the public domain, restrictions apply to Paramount, March of Time, Fox-Movietone, and Hearst newsreels.
