The San Francisco Bay Area Television Archive (SFBATA) is a regional moving image archive. It preserves and digitally restores 16mm newsfilm, documentaries and other shows produced by TV stations in Northern California (1948–2005), local Emmy Award winning programs (1974–2005) and privately donated film collections (1939–2004).
SFBATA was established in 1982 by Helene Whitson and is part of the J. Paul Leonard Library's Special Collections Unit, located on San Francisco State University's main campus.
