A collection of informative articles which promote the ideal of free access to television technology appears in this tabloid format periodical. Of particular note is a proposed videotape distribution and exchange system, in which the periodical would serve as a clearinghouse for the exchange of non-commercial videotapes. Other articles concern such topics as media ecology, the Watts Communications Bureau and Training Center, the PLATO IV computer-assisted instructional system, videotape hardware standards, videotape cassettes, dial access information retrieval systems, lasers, and cybernetic guerilla warfare. A state-of-the-art report compares the various brands of portable videotape equipment. The names, addresses, and current projects of those involved in innovative television projects are compiled into a loosely-organized directory. (JY)
