20 Years Of Footage?!

I have been asked to put together a compilation of images, news headlines and video from the last 20 years for a one off presentation...but we have a VERY short time to do this in. Does anyone have any ideas of how i can easily/quickly get some footage together? The BBC had a series called I Love the 1990's which would have been ideal! Plus at the end of every year TV channels seem to be filled with achive footage of events from that year. Any ideas how I can get hold of this kind of matieral?

Any help or suggestions appreciated! Thanks

A lot of that material is in the broadcasters' libraries, there are news organisations who also have libraries. The downside is that it's not cheap to use, unfortunately, the days of cheap archive material are long gone .
