Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 9, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 LETHBRIDQE HERALD Saturday, February 9, 1974 TV license renewal consideration Brief asks strict conditions on CBC TV highlights The Committee on Television, a group of professionals in broadcasting, publishing and education, backed by 63 leading Canadians, has asked the Canadian Radio-Television Commission to attach strict conditions to the renewal of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's English television network license. The Committee has suggested that the CRTC permit the CBC to continue operating only on the promise of improved performance and significant internal reorganization. On Feb. 18, in Ottawa, the CBC will re-apply for its license. At thai time the Committee on Television will present a 187-page brief which criticizes the CBC and offers suggestions for major changes. The Committee condemns the CBC for inadequate programming and bureaucratic paralysis. "CBC English-language it says, "stands as a testament to a missed opportunity." While conceding a few noteworthy achievements, the Committee's brief says that "over the years first-rate programs have become fewer and further between and are now increasingly conspicuous by absence." The Committee argues that the CBC is out of touch with recent and encouraging developments in the arts, such as theatre, literature, and film. The Committee asks the CRTC to take a more active role in the CBC's future: "The CBC is incapable of generating the necessary internal reforms without a stringent set of conditions being attached to its license by the CRTC. The present hearings on the renewal of the CBC's license provide by law the occasion for such an intervention. The onus of responsibility for implementing any prescription for improvement falls on the CRTC." The Committee recommends that the CBC be split into two parts. One will operate the physical plant and facilities (the Service and the other will provide the programs (the Program "The Program Corporation will be devoted entirely to programming. Its president, vice-presidents and so on will be experienced programmers and will be judged entirely as such The Program Corporation will thus present itself coherently to Parliament and public. It will be in a position to ask that it be judged on its program alone." In this way, the Committee argues, the CBC will have the opportunity to clarify its goals and priorities and overcome the bureaucratic paralysis which, the Committee says, has brought it to its present unhealthy state. Moreover, the change will mean that the crucial decisions on programs will be made by programmers. The Service Establishment will become part of an existing government structure, possibly the department of communications. The brief also makes other suggestions for changes in the CBC English network: Complete revision of the commercial policy which will make programming master of advertising rather than its servant, possibly following European models.
