Community Television. A Handbook for Production.
American Association of Retired Persons, Washington, DC.; National Federation of Local Cable Programmers, Washington, DC.
This manual is designed to encourage older people to take an active role in local television program production and to design and produce programs that will enhance the quality of life for other older Americans. It is noted that locally produced television offers older people a voice at the local level, the opportunity for making new friends and learning new tasks, and the means for community involvement. The manual is divided into five major sections: (1) Local Programming: Some Background; (2) Television Production: The Players (the channel staff, the production crew, the talent, the audience, and a case study); (3) Television Production: The Tools (videotape, cameras, players/recorders/editors, the switcher, the film chain, graphics, the set, lighting, audio equipment, the Portapak, and odds and ends); (4) Television Production: The Process (getting started/training, the three Ps, scriptwriting, program formats, legalities, and program promotion); and (5) glossary. A 16-item bibliography is provided as well as brief descriptions of the sponsoring organization, the Institute of Lifetime Learning, and the National Federation of Local Cable Programmers. (DB)
