The deal provides free online access to interviews with Alan Alda, Sid Caesar, Norman Lear, Steven Bochco, and many other actors, writers, producers, and directors.

Google Inc. on Wednesday said it has started offering free viewing of videotaped interviews with some of TV's biggest celebrities, as the result of a deal with the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Foundation.

The Mountain View, Calif., search engine said the Foundation agreed to make its Archive of American Television interviews available, giving Google access to interviews with Alan Alda, Sid Caesar, Norman Lear, Steven Bochco and many other actors, writers, producers and directors.

As of Wednesday, 75 of the 284 films are available through Google Video. To get a listing of all 75 films, a person needs to enter the query "academy of television" into the Google Video search box. The Foundation's collection covers the last 75 years in television.

Among the other performers in the archives are Diahann Carroll, Ossie Davis, Phyllis Diller, Michael J. Fox, Andy Griffith, Robert Guillaume, Florence Henderson, Angela Lansbury, William Shatner, Dick Van Dyke, Betty White, and James Garner. Producers/creators include Carl Reiner and Dick Clark.
