In the context of modern historical science audiovisual documents are considered as a historical source, as well as a peculiar product of culture, able to significantly extend the knowledge of reality and to some extent able to assist in renovation of historical thinking in the study of the past. Attention is paid to structure and contents of audiovisual documents as an independent group of historical sources. Such a study approach allows resolving (through the use of the opportunities, tools, techniques and methods of source-studies) a number of challenges associated with the introduction of the most valuable information contained in these sources into the public and scientific environment.
