First of all, apologies for any confusion on C-SPAN3’s schedule last weekend.  They kept making changes to their schedule, and there was no way we were going to keep up with them.  Sorry if you tuned into something that wasn’t there.

This week we’re cutting it close with some programs coming on this very evening.  All times listed below are Central.

-Tonight at 7:00 p.m., the 100th Anniversary of U.S. Entry Into World War I.  This is not the April 6th ceremony, but the Q and A session done before at the National World War I Museum and Memorial.  This appears to be the only airing of this program this weekend.

-Also tonight at 9:35 p.m., the  World War I 100th Anniversary Ceremony which IS the April 6th ceremony from Kansas City.  This will air again at 5:00 a.m. Monday morning.

-Saturday, April 15th at 7:00 p.m., a program on the 1916 San Francisco Bombing.  This took place on Preparedness Day, a day set in anticipation of the country going to war.  It will air again at 11:00 p.m.

-Saturday at 9:00 p.m., On the Firing Line with the Germans.  This is a 1916 film restored by the Library of Congress.  It will also air at 3:00 p.m. Sunday and 1:00 a.m early Monday morning.

Sorry for the short notice on this evening’s programing.  Please remember we can’t necessarily keep track of last minutes changes to the C-SPAN3 schedule!
