it’s time once again for our weekly effort to let you know what WWI programming is on C-SPAN this weekend. The good news is that the schedule hasn’t changed during the week! As usual, all times are Central.
-First up is the 1915 film that aired last weekend, On the Firing Line with the Germans. This will air Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m.
-On Saturday evening there is a program on Military Service Animals. We’re assuming this includes WWI; the description of the 17-minute program is that it “talks about the history of animals that worked in the military in the 20th century.” It airs first at 8:35 p.m. Saturday, then again at 12:35 a.m. very early Sunday.
-At 8:10 a.m. on Sunday morning will be a repeat of the 1916 San Francisco Bombing, which occurred during a Preparedness Day parade.
-On Sunday afternoon at 5:50 p.m. Yale historian Paul Kennedy talks on U.S. Mobilization for World War I. It repeats at 9:45 p.m.
Again, after the first airing of these programs on C-SPAN, they are available through their website.
