The Science Program Group for Public Television in the United States.
Ambrosino, Michael; Burns, Blair, Ed.
A proposal commissioned by the American Association for the Advancement of Science suggests a science programing group for U.S. public television with the mission of increasing the level of understanding of science by a large part of the public. It is proposed that programing be undertaken at WBGH-TV Boston for the entire Public Broadcasting System. A first project of 30 one-hour programs is outlined, with specific suggestions of topics, including the genetic code, the green revolution, the immune reaction, and others, and with detailed explanation as to how the suggestions might be implemented. Use of such techniques as macrophotography, microphotography, electron microscopy, and others are advocated and described. Details of cost and funding are also analyzed. Five other projects, including a series for children and programs to analyze scientific news items, are also briefly discussed. (SK)
