Cox Cable Video on Demand to Offer UNO Documentaries
Omaha - Cox Communication’s local video of demand service now offers several award-winning University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) documentaries for free. This new service is being provided to all digital cable Cox subscribers in the metropolitan area.
Shows now available on Cox Channel One:
• “If These Walls Could Speak” (a documentary focused on Omaha’s architecture through the years and how building reflect the social, political, economic, and geographic forces that shaped the city.)
• “Omaha Since World War II” (the program delves into the people and events that have shaped Omaha in the postwar era.)
• “Madagascar – Conservation vs. Survival” (Details the struggle Madagascar faces as it tries to balance feeding a growing population while preserving endangered habitats.)
In addition to the three documentaries, a video short – “UNO 2009 Centennial Celebration” -- is also available. The five-minute segment, produced by the University of Nebraska Foundation, first aired at the UNO Centennial Gala in February.
“The documentaries produced by UNO TV have aired both locally, regionally and nationally,” said Tim Kaldahl, director of University Relations. “‘Madagascar’ won a Heartland Regional Emmy Award in 2007. Making these amazing shows available to a wider audience is terrific for the university.”
Viewers need to go to Cox Digital Cable channel 1, select “On Demand” and follow the selection prompts. There is no charge to view the documentaries. The Video On Demand offering from UNO come out of the university’s ongoing Centennial year advertising partnership with the cable system. More documentaries will be made available later this summer.
For more information, call (402) 554-3502.
UNO is celebrating its 100th anniversary. The celebration recognizes the partnership among the City of Omaha, its citizens and UNO to build a vibrant and dynamic community. The centennial theme is “UNO: Central To Our City Since 1908.” This theme acknowledges the past contributions of UNO to the community and sets the stage for great things to come.
UNO, inaugurated in 1968, emerged from the Municipal University of Omaha, established in 1931, which grew out of the University of Omaha founded in 1908. For Centennial information, go to http://www.unomaha.edu/100/.
