Description

[Original caption] If community television is to be meaningful, involvement by viewers must extend beyond passively watching a program. Cable Report is part of a cable education process. Using half-inch videotapes from the annual National Cable Television Association Convention as a springboard, Portable Channel held a town meeting on “Cable” in WXXI-TV’s studio. Public officials, cable experts, and interested citizens discuss cable television. In addition to taking telephone questions and comments, people watching the program were invited to participate in the discussion which continued long after the program left the air.
