Looks like this weekend, we must be getting closer to an anniversary (all times Central):

-“Woodrow Wilson and World War I” will air three times this weekend.  This has aired before; it is a tour of the Woodrow Wilson Home in Washington, and focuses on WWI artifacts.  Airs 7:45 a.m. Saturday, April 1; 3:25 p.m. Sunday afternoon the 2nd; and 11:45 p.m. that evening.

-Another show that has aired before is America Goes Over.  This is an Army film from 1918.  Airs at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, April 1st; again at 4:00 p.m. Sunday, April 2nd; and 8:00 p.m., that evening.

-New programming!  “100th Anniversary of U.S. Entry into World War I.” This is a two hour, thirty minute program live from the National World War I Museum and Memorial that appears to be questions from viewers and discussions about artifacts.  First airing is 9:30 a.m. Saturday morning, April 1st; repeated 5:00 p.m. Sunday April 2nd and again at 9:00 p.m.


-“The Ordeal of Woodrow Wilson” is a 1961 film hosted by Herbert Hoover that looks at the fight for the League of Nations.  It airs at 9:00 p.m. Saturday, at 3:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, and early Monday morning at 1:00 a.m.
