Persons scheduled to testify the second day of the hearings were Governor Marvin Mandel of Maryland; an unnamed witness; William Harley, president of the National Association of Educational Broadcasters; Hartford Gunn, Jr., general manager of station WGBH, Boston; Fred Rogers, star of NET's "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood"; and Floyd Christian, commissioner of education and state superintendent of schools, Florida.

President Johnson, in his final budget message, recommended $20 million for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, four times more than Congress authorized for the CPB last year. On April 29 and 30, the Communications Sub-committee of the Senate Commerce Committee conducted hearings to determine how much of Johnsons recommended figure will be given the CPB for the coming fiscal year. NETs special-projects unit presented an hour of highlights for each of the sessions. Dick McCutcheon is the host of both episodes, and Robert Lewis Shayon, television critic for the Saturday Review, provides approximately three minutes of commentary at the conclusion of each part. Public Television Hearings is a production of NETs special-projects unit. The two episodes were both originally recorded in color on videotape.
