VIDEO: Houston news videos from AP's archives

NASA, Howard Hughes, Enron and more old news videos of Houston from the Associated Press (AP) archives

Last June, I posted videos from the 1940s to the 1960s of Houston, the Astrodome, The Texas Medical Center and NASA from newsreel service British Pathé.

And now we get some more historic Houston news videos. The Associated Press just posted one million minutes of historical video dating back to 1895 in cooperation with British Movietone on YouTube.

Here are some Houston highlights.
