San Diego, CA, May 18, 2004 -- Take a much needed summer vacation from mindless re-runs and shouting pundits and tune in to enriching and informative television from University of California Television (UCTV) on San Francisco's educational access channel 27 (Comcast). Every weekday from 1:00PM to Midnight (Wednesdays until 8:00PM) beginning May 24, San Francisco basic cable subscribers can enjoy interviews, lectures, documentaries, and performances from all the UC campuses and affiliated institutions, covering subjects such as health and medicine, science, public affairs, and the arts.
With programs such as UC San Francisco's "Mini Medical School" series to UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism's "Media at War" conference, it is obvious that the Bay Area is home to two of the UC system's most renowned campuses.
