Kabelvision Kiruna; CATV-Experimental Application of a New Channel in a Neighbourhood Society.
Commission for Radio and Television in Education, Stockholm (Sweden).
The first non-commercial cable television (CATV) project in Sweden was conducted in Kiruna since it was the site of an established commercial CATV network. The Kiruna project goal was to emphasize locally produced programs. Objectives tested were production and planning forms, cooperation between groups, and utilization of a program bank. Evaluation of the first trial period indicated that 90 percent of the people interviewed wanted the experiment to continue. The trial period was too brief to provide satisfactory assessment, so funds were allocated for continuation. Evaluation again indicated success, especially in programing. The Committee for Television and Radio in Education (TRU) determined that CATV as used in Kiruna should be regarded as an independent medium which is not to be isolated from other media and methods. Statistical tables show the viewer age, level of education, percentage of viewer opinion, and comparative figures. (Author/DS)
