TV Guide (a summer of repeats)

  • all times pacific, add +3 for eastern, adjust for other time zones
  • Massive Hardwood Heavens Marathon on MojoHD (formerly INHD, a high definition channel). These are documentaries that look at the history and tradition of some of the most historic college basketball arenas in the country. The marathon starts on Saturday June 23 at 4am, and continues until 3pm pacific. I kid you not. Usually ESPN's Brent Musburger narrates. The episodes shown on TV (about 25 minutes long) are highlights of the original documentaries.
  • The original documentaries are longer and are available on DVD. Some of the Hardwood Heavens DVDs are available at Amazon, including Rupp Arena of Kentucky, Allen Fieldhouse of Kansas, Assembly Hall of Indiana, and the Dean Dome of North Carolina.
