Where to start to find old media?

#1

Post by msiefkes »

So I have always loved the Christmas Devotional where President Hinkley gave the talk about the Wondersous and True Story of Christmas. For those who might remember there was a story about a new school teacher and Big Tom in it.

I am trying to find audio or video of that Christmas Devotional because I love how President Hinkley told the story. Yes, the address was published in the Ensign and yes, a different person read the story but I am looking for the original version.

Any ideas where to start? Besides google or the church website as those have been tried

Thanks.

Gospel Media has Christmas Devotional videos back to 2010:

I don't think devotionals much earlier than that are available on the Church website. It looks like President Hinckley's message was from December 2000.

You could in the Church History Catalog – sometimes older materials are uploaded there:

EDIT: See this page for the December 2000 devotional (you may need to sign in with your Church Account):
