  Television program - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A television series that is intended to air a finite number of episodes is usually called a miniseries or serial (although the latter term also has other meanings).
The content of television programs may be factual, as in documentaries, news, and reality television, or fictional as in comedy and drama.
While television series appearing on TV networks are usually commissioned by the networks themselves, their producers earn greater revenue when the program is sold into syndication.

 Space Program and Television
The space program was a Puritan narrative, with its crew-cut NASA technocrats tirelessly striving toward the Moon, and a Western narrative, with lone heroes conquering a formidable new frontier (from mostly western facilities).
In 1967 three astronauts died in an early Apollo program test and the theme of astronaut as hero was tragically revived, and the public reminded of the risks of conquering space.
Television was unprepared for such a tragedy, with speechless anchors, an unfortunate tendency to repeat the videotape of the explosion constantly, and irresponsible speculation about the possibility of survivors.

 Television
Television signals may, however, be sent clearly from almost any point on earth to any other–and from spacecraft to earth–by means of cables, microwave relay stations, and communications satellites.
Cable television was first developed in the late 1940s to serve shadow areas–that is, areas that are blocked from receiving signals from a station's transmitting antenna.
Later, however, the growth of color television was delayed because it had to be compatible with monochrome–that is, color television would have to use the same channels as monochrome television and be receivable in fl and white on monochrome sets.

 PBPB | Public Broadcasting PolicyBase
Instructional television, which we consider no less significant, needs intensive further study in the total context of the educational enterprise, and is the subject of a major recommendation to this end.
The Commission further recommends that Congress act to permit the granting of preferential rates for educational television for the use of interconnection facilities, or to permit their free use, to the extent that this may not be possible under existing law.
Public Television can never be a national enterprise until effective interconnection has been provided both in order to distribute programs to educational television stations promptly and economically and to provide for live regional or national broadcasts when the occasion demands.

 BBC's 'reality' show may be cruel and unusual television / Program based on Stanford Prison Experiment
The BBC asked Zimbardo to be involved with the program, but he refused, he said, because while his experiment may be considered a landmark in social psychology, today it is also considered unethical, even by its creator.
Of course, television is not bound by codes of psychological ethics, which has led Zimbardo and others to worry that the show's producers may be hoping for the worst among their volunteers.
As for the BBC program, Korpi said, at least the participants have contracts that presumably explain the experiment in detail and include a quit clause -- two things he said were not given to him and other volunteers in 1971.

His parents sit in the invited live audience of less than 200, along with some of his brothers and sisters, and his two teenage daughters are down on the floor of the stage of the program with his ex-wife, Claudia Villafane, who divorced him last year after 15 years of marriage.
