I need to write a script that will run a recording program at a specified time , and stop it at a specified time.

I am trying to record a webinar that airs @ 2am in my time zone. I know that there are usually recordings of the webinar available after the actual time. But I am curious if there is a way to write a script that will run a screencapture recording program (CamStudio) at 2am and stop it at 4am.

path to program> C:\Program Files (x86)\CamStudio\Recorder.exe

Also, if anyone knows of a better way to do this, I am open to any suggestions.
