The Cable Book. Community Television for Massachusetts?
This manual is especially designed to inform and aid community organizations in understanding cable television and planning for the future. With the exception of the chapter on Massachusetts cable legislation, most of the book should be useful to community organizations anywhere. At the beginning, the history and experience of cable television in Massachusetts (Somerville and Boston) is reviewed, and then the questions of public access/ people's television, privacy and human rights, and ownership are discussed. The federal and Massachusetts regulations affecting cable television are presented. Finally, the local cable franchise is carefully analyzed with respect to the franchising process and the problems after the franchise is granted. Appendixes provided general reference information on cable television; also, a glossary is included. The book is illustrated with many cartoons. (WH)
