WORLD WITHOUT DISTANCE.
FRIENDLY, FRED W.
THE PRESENT SYSTEM OF DISTRIBUTION OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION AND RADIO PROGRAMS BY AUDIO AND VIDEO TAPE IS OBSOLETE, THERE SHOULD BE SIMULTANEOUS DISTRIBUTION. THREE PROBLEMS OF EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION ARE THAT (1) COMMERCIAL NETWORKS DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH AIRTIME, (2) EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION DOES NOT HAVE ENOUGH RESOURCES, FINANCIAL OR PROFESSIONAL, AND (3) EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION COULD NOT AFFORD INTERCONNECTION TO PROVIDE SIMULTANEOUS DISTRIBUTION. THERE SHOULD BE A GLOBAL SYSTEM OF SATELLITES, WHICH WOULD DRASTICALLY REDUCE COSTS, THE SAVINGS TO BE APPLIED TOWARD FUNDING, FINANCING, AND PROGRAMING FOR EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION. AS PROPOSED IN TWO MODELS, BROADCAST NONPROFIT SATELLITE PROJECTS ONE AND TWO, 44 TO 68 CHANNELS COULD MAKE POSSIBLE LOW-PRICE INTERCONNECTION FOR COMMERCIAL NETWORKS AND FREE INTERCONNECTION FOR EDUCATIONAL RADIO AND TELEVISION STATIONS. CERTAIN PROGRESS HAS ALREADY BEEN MADE TOWARD THIS GOAL--THERE HAS BEEN DIALOGUE ABOUT COOPERATIVE PLANNING, OUR THREE PRESENT NETWORKS AMOUNT TO A SINGLE SERVICE THROUGH SIMILAR PROGRAMING, AND INTERCONNECTION FOR EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION IS GENERALLY ACKNOWLEDGED TO BE EVENTUALLY ASSURED. THIS ARTICLE APPEARED IN THE NAEB JOURNAL, PUBLISHED BI-MONTHLY BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS, URBANA, ILLINOIS 61803. (EB)
