Adult Education -- The Formative Phase.
With a view to showing how Independent Television Authority and Independent Television have met the parliamentary injunction to educate, inform, and entertain, this document attempts to present the varying methods used, and the weaknesses and strengths as well as the originality and traditionalism of the programs offered to the adults of Britain. Aspects covered are: The Long Tradition; Adult Education Series: The Beginnings; Adult Education: The First Regular Programmes; and Characteristics, Transitory and Abiding, of the Early AETV Output. Main developments from 1964 to 1967 include proliferation; diversification -- The Full Man (1964), Teachers' Workshop (1964-5), College of the Air (1964), Towards 2000 (1964-5), Farm '65 and Farm '66 (1965-66), Croeso, Christine (1966), First Steps in Physics (1966); and the composite course. At all levels, the audience aimed at, the goals set, and the difficulties and successes experienced are stated. Mentioned also are expertise of the broadcasting authorities and the cooperation they establish and maintain with the educational world, and through them with the public served. Future plans include, among other things, questions on public policy, program planning, production, and research. (nl)
