I am studying TV$RADIO at Brooklyn College in NYC.
I need your help to find some information or ideas in recent television
programing difference from 1950s or 60s.
It's good to know it's /their content, scheduling, marketing,critical
reception, and generic characteristics in regards to its/their overall
placement and significance in the history of broadcasting.
Since I have been in this country only for 2yeaars... so, this assignment is
kind of hard for me to do it.
any information would help me..
thank you all
