Description
Episode Description
"Imagine yourself in your Leningrad apartment, ready to relax in front of the television after a long hard day at work. What will entertain you, what will be the news of the day? How will the world look through your television screen? "Beginning last fall, KTCA viewers had a rare opportunity to watch television as the Russians do, on a new monthly program called 'Channel 3, Moscow.' "What is the Soviet government attempting to tell its people through television and how are various aspects of 'the Soviet mind' reflected in their programming? For one hour each month, highlights of actual Soviet broadcasters are combined with lively conversation and analysis by Joe Summers and Jan Smaby (hosts of KTCA's weekly public affairs series, ALMANAC) and a group of visiting specialists involved in the study of the Soviet Union. Each program also features the participation of a Western reporter currently based and living in Moscow. "The production and planning for 'Channel 3, Moscow' is possible through an agreement with Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska. KTCA was able to review and translate the weekly 40-45 hours of Soviet television taped by Creighton's Telecommunications Unit, and then ran a 3-month experiment on its weekly ALMANAC series. In that experiment, brief six-to-eight-minute segments of Soviet Television were broadcast each week, followed by analysis. Viewer response was so overwhelmingly favorable that the decision was made to expand the idea to a monthly series. "In show #103, the usual national and international news is covered along with a review of the film, 'Rambo;' a game show; a Czech singer performing Stevie Wonder's hit, 'I Just Called To Say I Love You;' and an update on the continuing struggle of American Indian activist Leonard Peltier."--1985 Peabody Awards entry form.
Description
Go beyond perception of Moscow as a gray city. We'll focus on the Geneva Summit, how the Soviets view the United States, and we'll see some highlights from a game show, and name that American tune.
