European Experiments in Cable Television: Local Radio and Video: Lessons to Be Learned and Prospects for the Future. Strasbourg Colloquy, 11-13 May 1977.
Council of Europe, Strasbourg (France). Committee for Out-of-School Education and Cultural Development.
This 2-part report summarizes the Council of Europe's 1977 colloquy on cable television, local radio, and video, and presents the chairman's report on media and public usefulness. Problem areas addressed in the section on public service applications of the media include ensuring public access to the media, financing local radio and television, keeping functions separate, establishing a system of control, and research into public needs and communications. A program of action for the European community is proposed and current research in public access to the media currently underway in the various member nations is outlined. The chairman's report examines several factors implicit in public service and the media: pluralistic organization, diversified finance, separation of such functions as production and distribution, co-ordination and supervision of experiments by ad hoc authorities, and adaptation of experiments to real communication needs.
