The Sleeping Medium: A Report of the Community Television Study Project, Alberta, 1971.
Zelmer, A. C. L., Ed.
Conducted through a survey of several communities using videotaped interviews and an examination of the general Canadian media scene, the study undertaken for this report attempted to determine the current level of awareness and knowledge of Albertans concerning the use of cable television (CATV) for community programming. Since the study indicated that there was a general lack of knowledge about community CATV, that community-developed material for CATV is in need of financial and moral support, and that cable companies are providing the right of community access, the report recommends an extensive program of information dissemination and education concerning all aspects of community CATV as well as flexible legislation policies by the Canadian Radio Television Commission to account for regional and local differences. The report includes a philosophy of community access to cable television, a glossary of terminology, an outline of a demonstration project for a community programming center, and a bibliography of papers collected for the study.
