ResearchChannel programming airs on uw2.tv
August 12, 2002
ResearchChannel brings viewers the opportunity to get information
as it is reported by the scientists involved in research endeavors --
from astronomy, medicine, computer science and engineering, and oceanography
to politics, childhood development, arts and literature, law, and much
more. ResearchChannel consortium participants provide the best they have
to offer in content such as Stanford University's "Women & Health"
series, or the National Institutes of Health's "Science of Complementary
and Alternative Medicine." Astronomy buffs enjoy Yale's "A Tour
From the Kitt Peak National Observatory," while other viewers like
meeting face to face with the fifty greatest contemporary thinkers in
America in the "Closer to Truth" series.
Created as a channel for experimental programming, uw2.tv currently broadcasts Traffic TV, an experimental resource to improve transportation efficiency and reduce travel times by providing rush-hour traffic updates so viewers can get a forecast of their morning and evening commutes. The lineup on uw2.tv also showcases NASA programming, including real-time coverage of launches, missions, and other scientific endeavors. ResearchChannel adds to the uw2.tv format another information resource direct from the original source.Archived News Articles:
