KIRKUS REVIEW

An extensive handbook for those connected with any of the many angles and aspects of television programming covers the field from an explanation of how television works-to censorship. Short chapters give brief but pithy introductions to these subjects: station personnel, studio equipment, camera operation and direction, special techniques, using movie films, setting and dressing, lighting, props, makeup, duties of the stage manager, script regulations, and types of programs- extemporaneous, educational, dramas, comedies, remote telecasts, sports, commercials and so forth. The sound technical data is an outcome of the author's long work in television, even though the social values stressed are in line with the established pattern of our salesmanship and entertainment.
