Transcript Page 4 BROADSIDE Tanuary 1974 FCC (continued) discussion of Sexuality and the Teenager to write the station about this ridiculous oversight. Surely, women experts in this area could have and should have been found and included. In order to make certain that the spring series includes women each week, please write Samantha Dean, Program Hostess, WOMAN, WNED-TV, Hotel Lafayette, Buffalo, New York. Channel 8 will deserve another round of recognition via letters when they carry the film, GROWING UP FEMALE, as the PBS "Special of the Week" on Monday, January 7 at 7 PM. The film, directed by a woman named Julia Reichert, will be followed by a panel discussion of eight men and eight women. DO NOT MISS IT! And when you write, be sure to personally thank Sharon Blair for her efforts on behalf of women in programming. She is the only woman program director in the Houston area and we believe we are seeing visible effects of having a sensitive and intelligent woman in this important broadcast management position. How many of you watched CRY RAPE! on Channel 11 (December 2 from 11 PM to 12:30 AM)? It was a dramatic attempt to deal with the crime of rape. Many points were pro-victim — the assault as only the beginning of the trauma, the degrading interrogation by police, the vicious questions by an ambitious public defender in the courtroom. Then came the "twist" ending. The accused is wrongly accused because his exact likeness (same actor and hairstyle, different-colored shirt) really committed the crime. The victim who identified her attacker tearfully asks her lawyer, "Oh, what can I do to say I'm sorry?". She apologizes but the man leaves the courtroom without granting her forgiveness. The film ends. Audience sympathy goes to the man, while she has to face the courtroom ordeal over again. As the credits rolled, it was interesting to note that an all-male crew had made the film. Please write the CBS network. First praise their attempt to treat the problem of rape, then protest their methods. Local programming must hear from us and here is one that must — Kasey Kirby's talk show, "Houston Scene" on Channel 26. On her December 18 program she had a guest from the Rice University Media Center faculty talking about a spring course in film making open to the community. Her introduction went something like, "Ladies, here is a great gift for your husband for Christmas.". In the interview she asked, "How long would it take you to teach a dum-dum like me. . . ? Obviously, she did not attend this fall's "Film Festival of Women Directors". In the television ad department PRAISE the Lionel train commercial which features a woman who complains because she did not get a train as a child and the narrator intones, "Lionel trains. We never said they were only for boys.". PRAISE the General Motors ad which shows Anne Jackson with a doll house and dolls on the set. She speaks of how homemaking was once the only career choice for girls and women but now all choices are open to women and GM is hiring women as engineers, scientists, etc. Write the NBC network for both these ads which ran on Channel 2. PROTEST the Instant Maxwell House Coffee ad which shows three women roommates on moving day. One says, "Let's have something to drink". Another says, "Coffee's not good this time of day". In comes the male who teaches them how to make INSTANT coffee — "the coffee that's good all day" . This is one of those male-dominated ads that seems never to leave us but it will continued on page 7
