Disclaimer: Each Wednesday we try to give you a heads-up on World War I programming on the C-SPAN networks, as they often have a number of good programs on the subject. The problem is they also have a very flexible schedule, which means it could change by the weekend. That happened this past weekend, where some programs were knocked off the schedule that had been on it a few days before. We also missed a program that aired on C-SPAN2 that we hadn’t caught when reviewing the schedules.
So our advice is this: double-check the schedules if you really want to see something, and remember if nothing else, most programs can be found on their website after they air on one of the C-SPAN networks.
And as usual–all times listed are Central.
C-SPAN2 has a number of programs scheduled this Saturday. Beginning at 7:00 a.m., Andrew Carroll’s talk on his book, My Fellow Soldiers, will air. This was first shown last weekend, and was delivered at the National World War I Museum and Memorial in April.
At 11:00 a.m., Jennifer Keene will talk about her book, World War I: The American Soldier Experience. It will repeat at 11:30 p.m.
At 11:30 a.m., Michael Neiberg will talk about his book, The Path to War: How the First World War Created Modern America. That will repeat at what is technically Sunday morning at 12:23 a.m.
At 12:44 p.m., Robert Dalessandro will talk about his book, Over There: America in the Great War. This will repeat Sunday morning at 1:14 a.m.
Switching to C-SPAN3:
Elizabeth Cobbs will talk on U.S. Women Soldiers During World War I at 8:10 p.m. on Saturday. Specifically, she will talk about the women who served overseas as telephone operators in the U.S. Army Signal Corps. The show repeats Sunday morning at 12:10 a.m.
Adriane Lentz-Smith will speak on African American Soldiers During World War I at 6:45 p.m. Sunday. This was a 13 minute interview at the Organization of American Historians’ annual meeting. It will repeat at 10:45 p.m.
