The Special Broadcasting Service has for some time been cooperating with various State Ministries of Education. The program TV Ed is simply a window through which educational programs made or purchased by various Ministries of Education can be shown nationally and recorded by schools and colleges for use at their discretion. TV Ed is a model of operation through which the educators can reach a wide audience and perhaps more importantly, can minimise duplication of effort with respect to a communication medium which is an expensive one.
The Special Broadcasting Service believes that a number of opportunities exist, which could serve both public and institutional needs. Ian Hamilton, Director of Production at SBS, will outline the TV Ed experience and give a broadcaster's view of innovative ways in which the medium might be used to better advantage.
