C SPAN Plans to Rebroadcast my Booknotes Interview tonight

Just noticed on the email weekend schedule that C SPAN 3 is reportedly planning on  re-broadcasting sometime tonight my Booknotes interview with Brian Lamb.

Unfortunately, the email states that the time is TBA – to be announced.

The schedule on the C SPAN website does not yet announce anything regarding the show.

The interview had some good laughs and lots of solid info, thanks to Lamb’s excellent questions.

If somebody hears when the interview will be, feel free to post it in the Comment section below.  

UPDATE:  The transcript of the interview is available here

George kindly posted info below on how to watch the entire video from the C SPAN website.  That is much easier than I thought

    I don’t have C-SPAN 3. 🙁 (Only 1 and 2)

    At this point, I am 0-for-3 on C SPAN.

    Most folks don’t get C SPAN 3, but, just in case….

    There’s so much government in Washington, they need 3 C-SPANs?

    The FBI reportedly doubled the number of agents assigned to investigating corruption on Capitol Hill.

    Maybe the C SPAN 3 is there to help assure live coverage of coming indictments?

    I rechecked the schedule a few minutes ago – nothing on the Booknotes re-air, but a re-air of a hearing on anthrax.

    I presume that any juxtaposition of my interview and anthrax allegations was strictly coincidental.

    The interview aired sometime last night. I received some friendly emails from folks who caught it for the first time. Here is part of one message –

    “I awoke in the middle of the night tonight. My strange brain had
    taken me to a place I had never been before: I was lying there
    convinced that significant parts of the Bush Administration
    knew about the 9/11/01 attacks ahead of time and, in fact, I
    was convincing myself that Rove or others planned the whole

    “So rather than stew & stew on something like that, I got up
    and surfed the cable TV channels for anything that sounded

    “You and Brian Lamb were sitting & chatting … taped in Sept.
    2003… I had never seen or heard you before. Quite interesting. Nice interview. Tyranny… probably sold a few more copies….”
    Always happy to pass the “semi-intelligent” test in the middle of the night. 🙂

    Under the “Options Menu” you can watch the program online. 🙂
    Just click “Watch Program”

    Note: It didn’t open with Firefox (at least not for me), but did with IE.

    George – thanks very much for the info.

    You’re welcome.

    Jim, I just finished watching the interview online. It was very good.

    I have read two of your books, but not “Terrorism and Tyranny” yet….but it is on my list. (So many books…but so little time.)

    George – Thanks! Glad you enjoyed the interview.

    I hope you get a kick out of Terrorism & Tyranny. I have the first chapter on my webpage, http://www.jimbovard.com – along with links to a bunch of excerpt and spinoff articles.

    A lot of places may have chosen not to do reviews of Terrorism & Tyranny because they considered it too cynical about the war on terror and the Bush administration. Unfortunately, the book is not out of date.

    A Spanish edition of the book is out, and I am told that an Arabic edition is pending (assuming that the Israeli Air Force did not flatten the publisher in Beirut).

    To view the interview in Firefox:

    1. Go to the link George provided above.
    2. Right click on “Watch Program”.
    3. Select the “Open in a New Tab” option. You may have to open the new tab and tell Firefox that it’s OK to view pop-ups.
    4. Then go back to the first tab and click again on “Watch Program”.
    I don’t know why, but this works.
