Alberta Cable Studies. A Condensation of a Report Prepared for Alberta Education.
Miller, Robert E.
This is a condensation of several studies which sought to ascertain how communities can, do, or could utilize cable television (educational--ETV--and community) in Alberta. Data was gathered on a wide variety of sources (e.g., cable operators, community groups, educational groups, government, general public) from questionnaires, program evaluations, and published reports. Results indicate: (1) educational institutions and the community are largely unaware of the potential of cable television; (2) most participants in ETV or community programing were post-secondary school educators; (3) educators showed equal interest in community channels, while community groups prefer the community channels; (4) favorite viewing hours were 7:30 to 9:30 p.m.; (5) program categories of the greatest interest are education, public affairs, recreation/health, and dramatic arts; (6) interest in and quality of ETV rates higher than that of commercial programing, while interest but not quality of community cable rates higher than that of commercial programing. Recommendations are made for each source from which data were collected. (DAG)
