The Wired City; A Handbook on Cable Television for Local Officials.
Ledbetter, Theodore, Jr.; Mendelson, Gilbert
Viewing cable television systems as a new communications system rather than just another business, this handbook provides a variety of information designed for local officials who must make knowledgeable public interest decisions. After a critical history of franchising procedures and a discussion of the naivete of local governments, the specific facts about cable television are presented, ranging from the basic technical aspects through to the marketing and legal considerations. The Federal Communications Commission's "Cable Plan" and the "New York City Rules Governing Access to Public Channels" are appended. (MC)
