Description
Howard Spurgle of WGBH's Unit 1 moderates a panel with participants Fred Barzyk, Director and Producer of What's Happening Mr. Silver?, Michael Rice, Vice President and General Manager of WGBH, Robert Smith, Program Manager of WETA, Washington D.C., and David Silver, host of the show, over controversial remarks Silver made during his previous broadcast. Expectations over on-air courtesy, respect for differing opinions, and language discretion are discussed. Spurgle concludes the panel, which he describes as "a behind-the-scenes view of the nature of television program planning," before resolution is made. WGBH decided to continue to grant What's Happening Mr. Silver air-time after the panel, and the show was broadcast until 1969.
This series experiments with new form and new ways of handling its subject matter by incorporating a youthful style and sense of concern. Series release date: 1967
