Development Communication Report, n26 Apr 1979
The title reflects the first and major article in an issue of this newsletter devoted entirely to communication satellites. This series of articles on the potential and applications of communication satellites in development projects is concerned with their development for commercial and public service, development in the Pacific region, SPACECOM and third world telecommunications, a Canadian experience with applications for public service, satellite instructional television in Alaska, demonstrations in rural development, rural communications for social services in Peru, pitfalls of satellite projects, and space information stations. Other articles include a discussion of some general concerns in the production and use of films in development education and the role of video in development projects. (CMV)
