Creative & Innovative
NBC Learn Original Productions has produced hundreds of stories for partners operating on a tighter budget. These stories still involve great story-telling, but rely on innovative field production, editing, and graphics to help stay on budget and on deadline.
Current Events & Historic Reports
As the educational arm of NBC News, NBC Learn Original Productions has access to truly "current" events, as well as access to the NBC News Archives, one of the largest news archives in the world.
