Living Today: BBC Local Radio Education.
Jones, Bob; Lovett, Tom
This booklet describes the setting, conduct and results of an action research project in which the Workers' Educational Association and the BBC local radio station in Liverpool jointly prepared an educational radio series for working class adults. In February 1971, six programs were broadcast under the series title "Living Today." Each program dealt with a topic relevant to the target audience. The general theme was to examine the influence which particular institutions have on people's lives and behavior, and the effect on the individual, group and community when these institutions lose power and influence in a rapidly changing society. The objectives for the series were: extension of vocabulary; critical awareness; use of concepts; and action. The project represented a new approach to neglected areas of adult education, using local radio as a vital instrument of contact between educationists and those whose needs are overwhelming and almost totally unsatisfied.
