The program, which has a runtime of one hour and forty-two minutes, can
Comcast Cable on Channel 16 (both North and South) as follows:
Wednesday, March 4, 2009, at 8 P.M.

Special note: The Center's partnership with RETN has
been of inestimable value to us since we began it in 1996. Not only do
we have permanent, tangible, and archivable records of Center programs,
but this programming also has the potential to reach viewers far beyond
the number of audience members who attend the live presentations,
including some 30,000 households in the Greater Burlington area who
subscribe to Comcast. Now, through the
technology of video on demand, Center programming
has become available to virtually all computer households that are
connected to the World Wide Web on a 24/7 basis.
