Spanish-English TV for Children To Debut Mc$buffl.R(gflMftfr^ Thu ^aY ^July 5, 1973 25 By PATRICIA McCORMACK NEW YORK (UPI) - BC-TV sounds as though it might be another Stone Age TV cartoon show. Not so. BC in this case stands for BiCultural. The BC -TV is [bicultufal children's television |-a federally funded, fton-profit organization formed in 1972 to Ed*catiM Today develop the nation's first Spanish-English children's edu­ cational television program. The idea? Make it bilingual and bicultural and show it on a daily, national basis. The program makes its debut in the fall and is intended for use on facilities of the Public SAVE LIKE A MILLIONAIRE ON AS LITTLE AS $100! 6.04% ACTUAL RETURN ON 2 YR.

Will Incorporate All The show's format will incorporate all the electronic magic and technical finery now standard for children's educational television. A live cast of characters will be interspersed with film, computerized animation, music, storybook characters, myths, I fantasies, games, song and dance to convey educational curriculum. Spanish heritage, culture and customs will be honored and provide a common basis for all cultures. Program time will be! equally divided between the; Spanish and English languages. The target audience: Millions of young American children- bom Spanish-oriented and Anglos (white, black, red, and yellow). The age group: From preschool through the primary grades. The long-term purpose of this program, funded by the U.S. Office of Education (USOE): I "To strengthen the nation through ever-developing increments of unity and understand­ ing on the one band while assuring the full vigor and contribution to society ol an heretofore untapped human resource approaching 14 million persons." Does BC-TV want and need both a Spanish-oriented and an Anglo audience? Yes. The reason: Genuine bilingualism- biculturalism cannot be achieved without it. An Anglo audience is as essential as the Spanish-oriented to achieve the sought-after goal. The desired bilingualism- biculturalism will occur only when Anglo and Spanish- oriented children become familiar with the language, heritage and customs of the other. That's the theory.
