After 12 Years, UH's door to learning for students and public looks back in pride, ahead in high hope
First and always foremost, formal instruction for students. [...] giving the entire community access to the complete cultural resources of the university center. The bitterest lesson we have learned, said Ch. 8 general manager Roy Barthold in his 10-year report of two years ago, is the realization that adequate performance of the functions of communications link, town hall and cultural center for the community simply cannot be budgeted by a university or school system. By 1963 more than 40,000 UH students had received lectures on television, and this year alone, college classes on TV account for some 15 hours per week on Ch. 8 with enrollment of 3700 students. In Big Studio Now [...] just this year, Ch. 8 operated from a cramped studio in the Ezekiel Cullen Building on the UH campus. Originally the building was occupied by the short-lived UHF commercial station on Ch. 39, and university officials hopefully planned for the site to become Houston's "Television Center," housing both the local commercial stations and a Ch. 8 building. TV courses at the university now have an enrollment of 3700 students, studying such subjects as mathematics, political science, accounting, trigonometry and biology. NET's five hour of new programs per week fall into four broad categories -cultural affair, public affairs, children's programs and instructional offerings. Houston Public Media's television stations offer PBS programming including kids shows and cooking how-tos. Though faculty members no longer teach classes on the air, studios are used as a classroom on weekends for production classes, said Lisa Shumate, associate vice president and general manager of Houston Public Media.
