Working on a Buttesstrap Or How to Put Together a TV Program for $25 Or Less.
Stuter, Jan; Scroggs, Joyce
California Librarian, v35 n3 p40-45 Jul 1974
Two librarians, one from Yuba County and one from Sutter County in California, prepared a cable television program as a means of presenting community information and bringing the library to the people. They put together a half-hour show which began with a self-introduction and explanation by the two librarians, and came back to them occasionally for lead-ins to various parts of the program, which included a puppet show, a slide presentation, and critique of a restaurant, an explanation of a new food stamp program, a visual book review, a preschool program, and some library ad spots. Finally the two librarians had a brief informal conversation and invited audience comment. The show had been previously announced in newspapers, on local radio, and in fliers. In spite of some technical and financial problems, the show has become a bimonthly production using various media--8mm films, slides, videotape, animation, and live presentations--as well as many skilled local volunteers, and talent and help from the local community college.
