C-SPAN seems to be slowing down its World War I programming.  There are two programs on Sunday, July 30th–both have been on before, so you should be able to view them at any time on the C-SPAN website.  As usual, all times Central, and we’re not responsible for their schedule changes!


Why Wilson Matters, and we’re not talking about the guy behind the fence on Home Improvement.  Tufts University professor Tony Smith discusses his thoughts on Woodrow Wilson and his effects on foreign policy in the 20th century.  7:30 a.m., July 30th.


Legacies of WWI.  This was also on last weekend.  The panel discusses World War I with a particular focus on the Middle East.  Taped at the National World War I Museum and Memorial on April 6th.  8:15 a.m., July 30th.
