Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports 1974-1996 - The Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS) Daily Reports has been the United States' principal record of political and historical open source intelligence for nearly 75 years. The original mission of the FBIS was to monitor, record, transcribe and translate intercepted radio broadcasts from foreign governments, official news services, and clandestine broadcasts from occupied territories. Many of these materials are first-hand reports of events as they occurred. As such, the FBIS Daily Reports constitutes a archive of transcripts of foreign broadcasts and news that provides fascinating insight into the second half of the 20th century. These Reports cover 1974 to 1996 of total years, 1941-1996. Content is gradually being added to cover 1941-1974.
