A Proposal for A New Television Network

A proposal for a new television network submitted by The Ad Hoc Commitee For A New Network. Tom Weinberg and Dee Davis are the contacts for the proposal. Citing the new phenomenon of widepsread access to cable television and satellite TV, the proposal aims to make non-commercial, socially relevant TV available to American homes by setting aside a network reserved for independent work. The writers note that despite the wide array of channels now available, there is no diversity in programming as envisioned at the dawn of cable TV. They also note that the independent community has been producing thoughtful, innovative, and provocative video for over twenty years, but has never had adequate space to air their work. The issue is one of social change and of reclaming America's airwaves for material produced by and for the people.
