Six separate pieces of information comprise this packet of background material on the National Instructional Television Center (NIT). Two brief descriptive statements provide an overview of the history and current operation of NIT and a summary of the consortium concept as it has been utilized by the Center to produce three series of films--"Ripples,""Images and Things," and "Inside/Out." Following this is a listing of the more than 30 agencies which cooperated to produce "Inside/Out". Lastly, articles from "The New York Times,""TV Guide," and "The Washington Post" discuss "Inside/Out", a 30 episode series which takes an effective approach to the emotional health and well-being of eight-to-ten-year olds. Each of the 15 minute films deals with emotions and attitudes toward death, love, responsibility, or some other subject not usually addressed in the schools. Contrasting points of view are depicted, with it being left to teachers and pupils to resolve the issues raised. (PB)
