Description
Can American afford a budget for scientific research that grows 15 percent annually? How much money is enough for basic research? Congress and many of the nations scientists disagree sharply. When a Congressional committee cut the National Science Foundation budget from $589 million to $323 million, Dr. Wiesner criticized the action. He said he felt the nation may be slipping back into a pre-Sputnik attitude toward spending for scientific research. AT ISSUE takes a close look at the feasibility of the Presidents goals in science. It also ask how members of Congress, untrained in science, can determine which areas of scientific research are worthy of support. The guests include Jerome B. Wisener, director of the Office of Science and Technology and scientific adviser to the President and Representative Emilio Q. Daddario (D-Connecticut). Running Time: 29:03 (Description adapted from documents in the NET Microfiche)
At Issue consists of 69 half-hour and hour-long episodes produced in 1963-1966 by NET, which were originally shot on videotape in black and white and color.
