Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - May 13, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Television Today UyJaySharbull Cosby's Documentary on Crime NEW YORK (AP) Come- dian Bill Cosby doesn't do ev- erything for laughs. He's also seriously interested in teach- ing and currently working for a doctorate in education from the U-niversity of Mas- sachusetts. As part of that effort, he's put together a film documen- tary that tries to show how ed- ucation can deter crime by giving ghetto youths a far more hopeful future than the deadly, daily scuffle of street life. Alas, the documentary only is showing tonight on public TV's KCET in Los Angeles. But Del Shields, the show's producer, hopes it'll eventual- ly be offered to the Public Broadcasting Service. "That would ideally be the first he said. "And then the second step would be to offer it to libraries or the of- fices of mayors in cities with programs that really try to help youths. "It's the kind of film that young dudes need to see so they'll understand there's re- ally no glory in going to jail. We'd like to give it maximum exposure and try to save some young lives." The documentary, "A Day at centers on the lives of three convicted killers now doing time at a Pennsyl- vania prison near Philadel- phia, the hometown of both Cosby and Shields. Since going to prison, two of the inmates have earned col- lege degrees; the third is a postulant in the Episcopal church. Shields says they will discuss the value of education and what the lack of it means with Cosby, who also narrates the film. The 50-minute film, made with the help of three students from Temple university, Cosby's alma mater, was shot hi three days back in March 1973 and took eight weeks to put in final form, Shields said. lie said the comedian put up nearly of his own money to finance the project, intended as part of Cosby's doctoral work as well as for TV and non-TV showings. Shields, who spoke in a tele- phone interview from Ingle- wood, Calif., where he man- ages a radio station in which Cosby is a stockholder, said he and Cosby had tentatively proposed the show to the TV networks. However, he said, "we didn't actively pursue it" be- cause they were told that 50 minutes was awkward, that it might have to be edited down to a half-hour program. "There were no hard feel- ings about it, but Bill refused to allow it to be Shields said. The program fi- nally was given KCET because of Cosby's close association with the station, he added. A KCET spokesman said the documentary may be submit- ted later this year to PBS for national broadcast, depending in part on the response it gets tonight for Los Angeles area viewers.
