    Footage of the Yugoslavian War for a documentary

    Hey r/CombatFootage,

    I am searching for combat footage from the yugoslav wars, for a documentary I am making. It's really important for my masters degree and there is a possibility it may gets on TV.

    We've got Interviews from people in the war which we took, and we were in Croatia, Bosnia and Serbia to film B-Roll Footage. The only thing that is left would be archive footage.

    The problem is, there is a lot of footage but all of it is for non-commercial use, or costs piles of money for a short video (for example AP Archive).

    Is there any footage which I can take without having to worry about copyright-infringement?

    Thanks!

    Looking for a good Documentary.

    I've just finished watching "The World at War" which was made In the 70s and It was absolutely fantastic. 10/10.

    I'm finished with that now and hungry for more.

    What I really fancy today Is a Documentary about .military technology advancing over the Years, In particular if anyone knows of one, a Documentary that focuses on either Tanks or Fighter Planes through the Years.

    Something where It starts with WW1 Vehicles and progresses Into modern times, showing the technological advancements through the Years.

    Thanks for any help.

    Intense Footage from Kangvai: Villagers Brave Firefight Amidst Ethnic Conflict

    In the tumultuous early days of May 2023, a gripping scene unfolded in Kangvai as villagers valiantly stood their ground in a fierce firefight against Manipur police commandos hailing from the Meitei community. The village found itself under siege by a marauding mob, bolstered by the presence of these commandos. The skirmish unfolded against the backdrop of an escalating ethnic conflict between the Meitei and Kuki-Zomi communities that erupted in May of the previous year. Shockingly, the very police force tasked with maintaining order became entangled in the conflict, starkly divided along ethnic lines. This chilling footage captures the raw reality of a community grappling with the harsh consequences of deep-seated tensions.

    Risky operation carried out by fighters from the Spear Group unit (12th Azov brigade) in the Serebryansʹkyy forest. They fire at enemy positions with an 82-mm mortar. Russian positions were just 400m away and at some point they even came under Russian fire.
