s?asw Alternative is required NEW YORK (UPI) High on Nancy Dickerson's list of what television needs is alternative public affairs broadcasting. Miss Dickerson, who was a network national news correspondent for CBS and then NBC starting back in 1960 when women didn't do those things, now is working on offering just such an alternative two documentaries a year for Capital Cities Broadcasting to be syndicated around the country. ' Her latest documentary, syndicated to 150 television stations around the country, is "A House Divided," a close and critical look at the House of Representatives. , "The things this program talks about are not very easy to do on television," Miss Dickerson said in an interview. "The House of Representatives has changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Power has been diffused, new members are much more independent since many of them were elected without party help, often on a platform pf opposing authority, Vietnam, Watergate. "Now on the big votes the Speaker of the House can blow the whistle and walk up the Hill and no one follows. "The result is we don't get action on important things like hospital cost containment or consumer protection. Never before have special interests been able to take over the system. EDMONTON JOURNAL, Saturday, December 3 ), 1978 H7 but now that the House is so fragmented, a bloc of 16 votes can kill you." Miss Dickerson quoted a Wisconsin congressman as saying "people couldn't care less how we vote on World War III, so long as we continue to protect their pet projects." She believes "potholes in the street" are local problems. Miss Dickerson said with a laugh, "I make it sound like a civics lesson, but it has pace and interest. People won't sit around watching this instead of 'Mork & Mmdy, but it's good enough to keep their attention."
