Secretary of State roundtable scheduled for broadcast on cable

Athens, Ga. - For those who were unable to attend The Report of the Secretaries of State: Bipartisan Advice to the Next Administration held in late March, a one-hour edited version of the two-hour roundtable will be broadcast on the University of Georgia's cable channel, Channel 15, on Charter Communications. The program will air on the Athens-area system June 2-6 at 1:00 p.m. and June 2-8 at 8: 00 p.m.

The original forum took place on March 27, when former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, James Baker III, Warren Christopher, Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell gathered in Athens to discuss current U.S. foreign policy with the goal of providing advice to the next presidential administration before a live audience of more than 2,000. The conference was sponsored by the UGA School of Law's Dean Rusk Center in association with the Southern Center for International Studies.

Additionally, the one-hour program can be viewed at www.law.uga.edu or on your local public broadcasting station (please check your local listings for details).
