Interesting BBC program in two days
There is going to be a most interesting (based on what I know, but have promised not to tell) BBC program this Thursday on the University of Wales and its process of validating institutions in other countries.
It is the popular 60-Minutes-like news and politics program, The Dragon's Eye.
First broadcast, Thursday Nov. 20th, 9 pm, BBC-2 (Wales).
Rebroadcast, 10:30 pm, same day, BBC-1 (Wales)
Apparently available on-line late Thursday or early Friday on "I-Player" (or it could be "Eye-Player"), and also on the BBC-Parliament site. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006mvzk
Programs are only available for 4 or 5 days, but sometimes they seem to end up on You Tube.
And the transcript should be available on-line on Friday morning.
2 weeks ago: the University of Wales confirmed their validation of Trinity in Indiana, and issued a glowing endorsement.
1 week ago: President Hunter of Trinity called the University of Wales to tell them that a BBC-Wales television reporter was coming to interview him, reason unknown.
5 days ago: the University of Wales terminated the validation of Trinity.
Today: The popular Welsh program 'The Dragon's Eye' devoted a major segment to the curious practice of the University's validation of dubious schools.
Tomorrow (Friday): The same story, apparently with new information, will lead off The Breakfast News on BBC-Wales.
The program is expected to be visible within 24 hours at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/wales/default.stm.
No word yet on Wales' validation of Robert Kennedy College, nor the future of their whole validation process, but the reporters I spoke to believe there is much unhappiness in high places at the University.
