vb.net Authorization header contents, google

i want to add an authentication header to my webclient to access the google atom feed


i added a header like this

client.headers.add("Authorization", "Basic " & blah blah)
i know the blah blah is fine but, it returns an unauthorized (401)exception. i think the header name may be wrong, i am also somewhat puzzled by the fact that the header value is also required to have ""Basic "" in it.am i doing this right? is there another name for the header?
