YouTube Announces New Partnerships Including The Smithsonian, Encyclopedia Britannica And More

youtube logoYouTube today announced several new channels including new partnerships or recently converted partners. Among the list are some great sources of history and science including the Smithsonian Channel, the Library of Congress and the Encyclopedia Britannica channel.

  • Encyclopedia Britannica leaps into the world of video: their YouTube channel contains vibrant footage of the internal workings of the human body, like this pounding heart (commenter BinkieMcFartnuggets is not far off when he says it looks like a chicken breast beating its head on the wall), cheese making, astronomy, and more.
  • Library Of Congress has gems from vast archives, including the earliest Edison films. (More on government channels in a future blog post.)
  • BlahGirls features sassy animated teens dishing on the week's celebrity gossip. From producer Ashton Kutcher.
  • Total Beauty TV specializes in helping you approximate celebrities' looks, from Gwen Stefani's signature makeup to Reese Witherspoon's clean and classic hairstyle.
  • FixMyRecipe comes to the rescue when you and your kitchen are just not getting along. Chef Billy Parisi helps "fix" recipes on a daily basis. Send your recipe to to see if it will become a "Featured Fix of the Day."
