Pacific Nations Broadcasting I; Symposium Held at the Annual Broadcast Industry Conference (22nd, San Francisco, April 19-22, 1972).
Draper, Benjamin, Ed.
This document contains the papers presented at the Twenty-Second Annual Broadcast Industry Conference held at California State University, San Francisco, in 1972. The aim of the conference was to develop a better means of communication among nations existing in a world that has grown smaller because of the development of the communications media. The papers presented include S.I. Hayakawa's "Some Psycholigical Implications of Television," which examines the semantic environment created by television and the effects of television on the values of young people; "The Role of the Media of the Republic of China"; "Impact and Meaning of Broadcasting in Japan"; "Prospects for Cable Television," which examines the uses and the possibilities of the coaxial cable in education, industry, and the home; and "Guidelines for Cross-Cultural Communication." Additional papers explore the challenges of international broadcasting in terms of political, economic, social, and educational effects. The twelve papers represent an initial step in the exchange of ideas, techniques, and content in the broadcast fields in the Pacific nations. A final section describes the current broadcasting facilities of the Pacific nations. (RB)
