Former President Bill Clinton's Jan. 29 speech at UC Berkeley to be broadcast live via closed-circuit on campus and by webcast over the Internet

BERKELEY - Former President Bill Clinton's Jan. 29 speech at UC Berkeley will be broadcast live over the Internet and also be video simulcast at UC Berkeley.

The talk, scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m., takes place at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Auditorium. Demand for the 2014 seats at Zellerbach exceeded supply. The event is sold-out with no tickets remaining.

Members of the campus community who were unable to get tickets to the free event in Zellerbach Hall may watch the speech live on video screens in the Haas Pavilion. The rear doors to the pavilion, those on the west side facing Evans (baseball) Field, are expected to open at about 2:30 p.m. That entrance is best accessible off of Frank Schlessinger Way, which is near the corner of Oxford and Center streets.

The event will also include brief remarks by California Gov. Gray Davis. Orville Schell, dean of UC Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism, will hold a conversation with Clinton following the former president's speech.

For those attending the event in Zellerbach Hall, please note that no backpacks and no flash photography will be allowed inside the auditorium.

The event is being sponsored by the chancellor’s office and the Graduate School of Journalism in association with Cal Performances and City Arts and Lectures.
