Deutsche Welle European Journal

Starting next week, we will add Deutsche Welle’s European Journal to our lineup.  Initially, it will run immediately after our University Channel programs; when the University Channel series runs out in late July 2011, European Journal will take over the timeslots.

While University Channel starts its weekly cycle on Saturday (repeating a few times during the week until the next Friday), EJ will start its cycles on Thursdays, and repeat until Monday.

Here’s the official Deutsche Welle description:

For nearly 30 years, EUROPEAN JOURNAL has been public television’s main source of in-depth coverage of one of the world’s most dynamic regions. Fifty-two times a year, DW-TV provides viewers worldwide with a fascinating mix of stories exploring the important political, economic and cultural developments in Europe. Each week presenters Cathy Smith and Jim Gibbons provide their unique take on stories unfolding across the Atlantic, telling the story with compelling video, strong reporting, and a good sense of humor. Europe is a diverse part of the globe with many languages and cultures. With Deutsche Welle’s 50-plus years of covering Europe for the world, our producers and journalists know the Continent just a bit better, and European Journal is our showcase of what we do with that knowledge and understanding. The stories in Europe are important ones and deserve more than the occasional 30 seconds on the nightly news. Only one program provides Americans with consistent depth and insight on developments taking place inside Europe on a weekly basis.

We are grateful to Deutsche Welle and its sponsors for making this available to us at no charge (along with our existing DW programs, Arts.21 and Global 3000).

The end of University Channel

After 2+ years of providing University and Graduate School lectures, seminars, and panels to us, University Channel is winding down.  There hasn’t been new content available for a few months, and their server will shut down on November 3rd.  We have started repeating content that previously ran on ACTV20, and will continue showing recent material one time more for each show.   The final show will run on Friday, July 29th 2011.

University Channel fading out, but slowly

We are almost at the end of new content from the University Channel.  Once we have shown all the new content from the last year, we’ll repeat recent content (starting from back in 9/09) until there’s new content available.  If no new content becomes available (and there’s been nothing new since 2/10), the series will end.  The last new lecture will run the week of 7/17.  Repeating all the recent content, one per week, will take us through the end of July 2011.

University Channel moves to one/week

When we started running University Channel content, there were so many offerings that we could run two new shows each week and it looked like we’d never run out.  This year the content made available to us has been much less than in the past, and we’re running out of fresh material to show.  So, starting next week (Saturday April 10), we’re cutting back to one new show per week.  It will run at the same times, except the 4:30 Friday repeat will be canceled.

Here’s the lineup of shows coming: this exhausts the accumulated backlog of shows.
