C-SPAN Founder Brian Lamb on C-SPAN's History and His Fight to Get Cameras Into the Supreme CourtStreaming Video - 2014
C-SPAN founder Brian Lamb discusses the network he started and his fight to get cameras into the Supreme Court. Founded on March 19, 1979, C-SPAN first aired proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives. Over the next 35 years, C-SPAN would expand its offerings to include coverage of the Senate, a wide variety of interview programs and live events, Book TV, radio broadcasts, and much more. American politics and media would never be the same. Despite the immeasurable public value it provides, C-SPAN has always proudly insisted that it was "created by cable" and is funded by pay-television operations at no cost to taxpayers or cable subscribers.
