Children's Television Programming and Public Broadcasting: An Analysis and Assessment of Needs. Executive Summary.
Seaver, Judith W.; Weber, Stephen J.
Designed to serve as a resource book to aid decision making by Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) staff and advisory panels, this report consists of a review and analysis of the current state of children's television programming. Major sections of the report are devoted to describing and analyzing children's television programming in the public broadcast community, while the remaining portions look at the context in which children and their television series interface. Three general topics are presented to describe this context: the child audience, the ecology of children's television viewing, and definitions of program content. Categories of conclusions used to summarize report findings include information needs, the status of children's television series, and issues. Alternatives and options for CPB action are outlined.
