Public Access Report.
Anshien, Carol M.; And Others
A short review of the development of cable television in New York City, a brief description of wiring patterns, a history of public access, and some statistical data on public channel usage are provided in the first portion of this report. The second major part describes the Public Access Celebration, a three-day informational event held in July 1972 to mark the first anniversary of Public Channel programing on cable television in Manhattan. Following this is a section which presents supplementary information about public access to cable television, including reports from local origination centers, reflections on the meaning and role of public access, and recommendations for implementation of full public access. An appendix lists individuals and groups participating in the Celebration, gives a copy of a franchise agreement under which a system operates, and describes public access procedures. (PB)
