About the WGBH Forum Network: There are various options for streaming these lectures on the site. People can listen to an “audio only” lecture with enhanced sound quality.

Those with a DSL or cable modem Internet connection can view “broadband video,” which delivers the highest quality audio and visual presentation. You must have RealPlayer 8 or higher (a free version can be downloaded from, accessible from our homepage) in order to play the videos.

With the advent of podcasting and video distribution sites on the Web, we offer three weekly lecture podcasts, listed below, which you can subscribe to through iTunes or the NPR podcast directory. We also offer full-screen videos through Google Video as well as Open Media Network, which you can download to your computer (search on WGBH Forum Network).
