External Environment Papers. Working Papers of Planning and Development Research. Working Paper 88-5.
TV Ontario, Toronto.
These papers present the major issues and directions in five areas: (1) the socioeconomic and demographic environment (demography, the economies and labor forces of Canada and of Ontario, and the international and social environments); (2) education (K-12, postsecondary, adult, and the educational media resource market); (3) the broadcast environment (federal policy, Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission, economic dimensions of the broadcasting system, the Canadian production and cable industries, audiences, educational broadcasting in Canada, public and commercial broadcasting in the United States, and the international environment); (4) the government environment (Canada, the Meech Lake Accord, and Ontario); and (5) the technological environment (cable, satellites, high definition television, stereo, VCRs, digital, videotex, and interactive television). The papers are a compilation of the opinions and understandings of those who work in, plan for, and study in each of the various fields. Sources are footnoted in each paper. The discussion in some of the papers exhibits the contradiction and lack of consensus evident in compiling the materials. The papers, therefore, do not provide answers but reflect the uncertainty of the environments in which TVOntario operates. Designed to stimulate discussion relevant to the future of TVOntario, each paper begins with a summary of the developments judged to have the most significance for the next few years. The remainder of the paper then provides details on these and other issues. (GL)
