Conversations with History (CWH) is a joint project from Berkeley University and the Institute of International Studies (IIS). Created, produced and hosted by Harry Kreisler – Chief Executive of the IIS – CWH was conceived as a new format for satellite TV, consisting in long interviews with the most popular and influential international scholars. After the first test phase, it began broadcasting every Friday on national channels such as the Echostar Satellite Dish Network. Designed as a way to foster intellectual debate, Conversations with History has become a classic format and an acclaimed online archive, including over 500 interviews with eminent personalities from academia, politics and economics. The portal is organized by personality, year of publication and topic. There are more than 50 categories, but the classification does not appear always consistent. The archive contains all the interviews from 1982 and all can be viewed in direct streaming on the Berkeley websites or the Youtube channel, within the larger Berkely Events channel which includes the courseware and sports events. They are also collected in a section dedicated to UC-TV and are entirely downloadable from the iTunes U portal as podcasts. Transcripts of many of the lectures are available.
