Educational Broadcasting in Greece.
This document offers commentary on the state of educational broadcasting in Greece. It sketches an overview of how that genre differs in Europe and North America; in Europe educational broadcasting often revolves around public affairs rather than cultural and artistic programming, and is often subject to more government interference. The history of educational broadcasting in Greece is discussed, including the main obstacles to its further development, including: (1) military interference; (2) government regulation and control; (3) drawbacks in Greece's historical evolution; (4) cultural barriers which hinder the introduction of modern technology; (5) lack of formal journalistic and broadcast training; and (6) direct interaction and imposition of imported programming. It is suggested that Greek broadcast programming in general, and educational broadcasting in particular, could be successful once free from government control and the direct imitation of foreign broadcast programming.
