Children's Television--An Affirmative Program for Community Involvement.
Committee on Children's Television, San Francisco, CA.
The Committee on Children's Television (CCT) since 1971 has been working with San Francisco Bay Area commercial television stations to make the stations aware of their responsibility towards children. CCT proposes to increase its effectiveness in this work in four inter-related ways: (1) family education--a program to provide the community with the tools necessary to influence the children's programming policies of local stations; (2) monitoring--a program to collect data on the content of existing programs; (3) station consultations--the scheduling of regular meetings with each Bay Area commercial station to discuss all aspects of programming for children; and (4) legal advocacy--a process of working with the Federal Communications Commission and others federal regulatory agencies to insure that Bay Area stations fulfill their public trusts. In order to carry on these programs CCT will need $67,200 the first year and $57,600 the second year. (JY)
