T.V. Schedules for the 2003 Madison, WI. Media Reform Conference

In November 2003 a national conference was held by The Free Press in
Madison, WI to discuss media reform. Many of the workshops, panels, speakers
were videotaped by the Chicago Access Network. Portland Community Media is
pleased to present these public affairs programs on a topic extremely
relevant today.
(This has already been playing on local Public Access. But here is a schedule so folks can be aware of the playback schedule in advance. The Conference featured some excellent speakers, including Al Franken, Amy Goodman, John Stauber, to name just a few, and a Keynote by Bill Moyers.)

Below is the schedule for playback of the programs on CityNet 30.
Because the tapes are of varying lengths, some episodes contain two tapes
