Television-Radio-Film for Churchmen. Communication for Churchmen, Volume II.
Jackson, B. F., Ed.; And Others
Television is discussed as a medium which presents great opportunities for religious education and inspiration. A selection of television programs from various countries is used as an illustration of the ways in which the medium lends itself to the goals of the churchman. The role of the church in radio broadcasting is seen as a goad to responsible programing on the one hand, and as a source of religious education on the other. Some guidelines for planning and production of religious radio programs are offered. An appendix to this section lists resources available to the would-be broadcaster. Films are seen as a valuable stimulus to discussion of ethical problems. The ideas of Marshall McLuhan are reviewed. Some guidelines for the content and format of a film study program are laid down, "La Strada" is used as a case study for the use of films in a discussion program. Films suitable for a teaching unit on war are suggested. Appendices to this section include an annotated list of films, a bibliography, and a resource list. (JY)
