Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 11, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDQE Stptembvr B.C. gov't. funds urged to finance TV system VANCOUVER (CP) The British Columbia government is being asked to finance the capital cost of a publicly owned television system designed to serve the interests and needs of B.C. residents. In a brief to the government, the Association for Public Broadcasting in B.C. proposed a television ser- vice devoted to wide ranging community programming which would form the third English language network in the province. The brief suggests that the system be financed through a subscription system where residents will pay a monthly fee similar to the current set- up for cablevision services. The association recommended a broadcasting structure of complementary services incorporating a decommercialized CBC, programs for "innovation and regional educational television and some reform of the current commercial network. "If Canadian television is going to flourish and be responsible, extensive tran- smission cannot stand alone without an integrated framework of complementary programming services, rein- forcing each other, particular- ly in the face of a predominant U.S. television the brief says. The government is being asked to initiate the system, pay the capital costs, and work together with public groups, the Canadian Radio and Television Commission, and the federal government to establish the network as the third English language television service in B.C CBC and CTV are the two English networks currently operating in the province. BEEN INVOLVED The association was formed nearly two years ago and has been actively involved in promoting public television and denouncing the addition of more commercial stations to the air waves. The government is being asked to finance capital costs of the system, the brief said, to relieve the system of a debt burden so that all possible funds could be used for program production and tran- smission. However, the brief made no attempt to estimate the cost of the proposed system saying that the price tag would de- pend on program sharing arrangements with other provinces and also funds gathered by western provinces through reorganizations of the major national networks. The association brief also recommended the govern- ment consider paying capital costs for a microwave tran- smission system to be used by non-commercial television and radio services. It said the microwave set-up could be run either through a publicly owned transmission system or a publicly owned telephone system. As for current cable televi- sion systems currently operating in B.C., the associa- tion urged the government to underwrite the conversion of them to public or co-operative ownership. The brief is also critical of a recent government study on communications done by con- sultant Barrie Clark. The association said the Clark study does not discuss the general programming station a format designed to cater to many interests. Film row closes TV network ABERDEEN, Scotland (AP) A row over a secret showing of Deep Throat, the Linda Lovelace pornographic movie, has put a. Scottish television network off the air.
