C-SPAN Updates House Video of Opening Day

January 4, 2013

On a couple of occasions, the House of Representatives allows C-SPAN to use its own cameras to cover the House. One of those occasions was the opening day of the 113th Congress, January 3, 2013. C-SPAN had a technical problem in recording the initial audio of the session causing C-SPAN to miss the audio of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Because the C-SPAN Video Library is a permanent record of the video and audio record of what happens in the House and Senate, C-SPAN has obtained a copy of the House of Representatives recording and inserted the audio of the Pledge into our online record. The complete Pledge can be heard here.
