Children's Television Programming and Public Broadcasting: An Analysis and Assessment of Needs. Final Report.
Seaver, Judith W.; Weber, Stephen J.
Designed to serve as a resource book to promote informed decision making by Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) staff and advisory panels, this study reviews and analyzes the topic of children's public television viewing. Both instructional and more general types of programming for children are examined; however, information relevant only for commercial children's television is excluded. Information was collected through interviews, site visits, and reference research, and data are displayed in tabular form throughout the report. Five broad content topics comprise the body of the report: children and television-content analysis, television series for children, program utilization and needs assessment, constituent concerns, and alternatives and options for CPB action. Information sources are listed, and the appendices include a course distribution comparative survey of five national agencies. (JEG)
