Cable T.V.: Boon to Vocational Guidance in Rural Areas.
Bliss, James L.; And Others
Allegany Opportunities is a television series which is designed to assist people who may be unemployed, underemployed, or contemplating entering an occupational field by informing them of opportunities available for work, training, and education and procedures for securing work in rural Allegany County. Emphasis is on those occupations requiring less than four years of college preparation. This paper first explores the development of the idea of a T.V. series about local occupations to be shown by the community cable T.V. company and procedures for involving the local community in the production. The technical procedures used to produce a broadcast quality video program with a minimal of technical staff budget are elaborated on. The paper also describes the community survey undertaken to evaluate the effectiveness of the series in providing occupational information in the community. (Author/WS)
