This paper analyzes the state of the world's educational broadcasting community following the rapid changes in the 1980s. The future prospects of educational television and radio broadcasting are discussed based on a summary of the Worldwide Survey of 48 foreign countries which was conducted in 1989, and a review of the presentations given by Japan Prize participants throughout this decade. It is noted that the contest was designed to improve educational programs throughout the world and to promote international understanding and cooperation. The use of technology for distance education production and to develop educational opportunities are described, and changes in the broadcasting world as well as obstacles to the development of educational broadcasting are reviewed. The importance of international cooperation is emphasized, including co-production of programs, supplying educational programs, and the dispatch of specialists to assist in program development. It is concluded that a global approach to education will promote a sense of education as a common task for all humanity, regardless of nationality. Appended is an extensive table, entitled "Survey of Educational Broadcasting around the World." (18 references) (DB)
