Commercial Television Personnel's Review of the Technical Quality and Marketability of AEL's "Around the Bend" Pilot Tapes. Technical Report No. 29.
Shively, Joe E.
In order to determine whether Appalachia Educational Laboratory (AEL) had the capacity to produce a TV series of sufficient quality, two pilot tapes were produced by AEL and then submitted for rating to nine broadcasting specialists from several commercial TV stations. Based on the responses of these nine individuals to a questionnaire dealing with technical quality and marketability, it appears that AEL has been able to demonstrate its capacity to produce TV tapes of sufficient quality. The tapes were judged to be average to above average in quality in 15 of the 16 technical categories on which they were rated. Only one category, "continuity of programing," was felt to be average or below in technical quality. Over three-fourths of the interviewed felt that the tapes were above average with respect to technical quality, and the majority were willing to make some efforts to obtain the tapes. (WDR)
