One Week of Public Television, April 1972. Number Seven.
Seventh in a series of annual surveys, this interim report describes analyses of the programing schedules of public television broadcasters during one week in April, 1972. Results are reported for four different types of programing: instructional programing, Children's Television Workshop productions, news and public affairs programing, and general audience programing. Additionally, data were analyzed and are presented concerning various characteristics of the broadcasters such as amount of time broadcasting, type of program presented, source of distribution of programing, budget size of broadcaster, region of the country, type of license, and size of population served. Selected comparisons with previous surveys in this series are also presented. A summary of the results shows that the Public Broadcasting Service's programs and locally produced programs increased in usage, that there was an increase in instructional programing, and that the quality of programing also appeared to improve. Detailed tables and other information about the survey are appended. (SH)
