Historic City News readers will want to watch C-SPAN this weekend when a dozen segments, six for Book TV (C-SPAN2) and six for American History TV (C-SPAN3), are aired as part of the Cities Tour programming.
Three weeks ago crews from C-SPAN visited St Augustine and spent five days interviewing local historians, authors and civic leaders and touring historical sites — gathering material on the literary life and history of the city for a special weekend of programming featuring the Nation’s Oldest City.
In addition to having the segments sprinkled in throughout the weekend on the respective networks, both will have a block of programming devoted to the St Augustine segments:
- Book-TV: Saturday, April 18 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) EST on C-SPAN2 (Comcast channel 104)
- American History TV: Sunday, April 19 at 2:00 p.m. EST on C-SPAN3 (Comcast channel 105)
