Future Opportunities for Television. Part II. Telecommunications in Urban Development. President's Task Force on Communications Policy. Staff Paper Six, Part B.
Rostow, Eugene V.
An appendix to a staff paper on telecommunications in urban development, submitted to the President's Task Force on Communications Policy, describes possible uses of new communications technology in the ghetto. Television, the most widely spread and most promising medium, has potential for improving education, increasing community awareness, and increasing flow of social service and public information. Educational television can be used in both school instruction and in general broadcast, especially to the preschool ghetto child. Imaginative public uses of television--for example a TV job center--are suggested. Technology and program feasibility are examined in detail and analyzed in terms of achieving specific community objectives. A pilot program of television use for educational and community objectives is detailed for the diverse ghetto area of South Central Los Angeles. Appendices are included. (BB)
