It is perhaps the best collection of Y2K Who's Who, each giving their best 15 minutes. No one can doubt the global impact after watching this panel discussion. If you miss it, you can purchase the video from CSPAN for $90.00 >

Yes, I saw part of this program. Tape it and pass it around to everyone you know. They will believe Y2K is no joke! Yardeni, DeJager and many others speak!

How can I get it if I don't get cable? I live in the SF Bay Area.

Please write to me email directly as well if you know...

ALERT!!! The C-SPAN program will be at 4:00 EASTERN STANDARD TIME. So, watch it, or set your tapes, accordingly. I'm here on the West coast--so that'll be 1:00 p.m. here.

-- Holly Allen (, June 06, 1998.

Ken, I think the only way you can get it is through cable. If not you might have to pay the $90.00 through C-Span. Try and find someone with cable and have them tape it for you. It's an incredible program! Good luck!

2nd ALERT!!! I guess my brain was working 'cause I accessed C-SPAN and, thankfully, discovered THE PROGRAM will be shown 12:01 noon to 3:02 ET and 9:01 am - 12:02 noon PT It's 3 hours long so be certain to have enough tape! I don't know if t will be on C-SPAN 2 also, which some of us in the Puget Sound area have.

I just called C-SPAN (202-628-2205) and as of 5pm on Friday (6/5), the Y2K Computer Problems Program is scheduled to air on C-SPAN 1 at about 4pm (Eastern Time) on Sunday, June 7th.

But if you go to their Site:

The Sched is:

12:01pm to 03:02pm ET 09:01am to 12:02pm PT

Forum Year 2000 Computer Problems Center for Strategic & Intl. Studies Washington, DC ID : 106506 Length : 3 hr 00 min Event date : 06/02/98 Belt, Bradley, Director, Center for Strategic and Intl.

Senator Bennett and various computer specialists and economists talked about the potential problems associated with the year 2000 and the difficulties computers may have with the change. Many experts have indicated that computers will perceive the year 2000 as 1900, which could wreak havoc with the economy in the United States and the world. The panelists talked about the various scenarios that could come about and how most of the damage might be prevented. Following their presentations, panelists answered questions from the audience.

Check the date on this. This is what I found at the site. I could find NO listing for Y2K related programming on Sunday. 6/07/1998.

-- Hallyx (, June 06, 1998.

They keep changing the times...I would recommend checking the C-SPAN site in the morning to see if it has been changed AGAIN! As of 10:15 pm(central), it is scheduled to run Sunday at noon(eastern).

-- Susan (, June 06, 1998.

To anyone - Is the Y2K program on at noon or 4pm ET? Just checked the schedule on C-Span's website; it says 12:01. (It's now 1:50AM MST where I am, so if the website is correct, that's 10:01AM for me. I don't have cable so I'll have a friend tape it - hopefully - but I hate to ask anyone to hang around all day to see when it's on.

Maybe the best thing is to start the VCR at noon ET and just let it run 'til the tape runs out. According to the schedule, the Y2K program is followed by a program ab't the Internet, which may be interesting.

Hey - w/all the confusion ab't what time the program we want to see comes on, I can't help but wonder what C-Span is doing ab't becoming Y2K compliant.
