C-Span Bus Stops at MBC
Public affairs broadcaster C-SPAN brought its mobile learning center to Mary Baldwin College February 20 in conjunction with the launch of its new original series, First Ladies: Influence and Image, premiering this month. Airing at 9 p.m. on Mondays, it will be the first television series to showcase all of the American first ladies, from Martha Washington to Michelle Obama. Dozens of students, faculty, and staff toured the bus, which is a 45-foot interactive multimedia learning center that brings C-SPAN’s coverage of public affairs to communities nationwide. Inside are interactive stations demonstrating C-SPAN programming, online resources, and how to use C-SPAN video library, an archive featuring more than 190,000 hours of programming that dates back to 1987.
