Senator BUTTFIELD (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - My question is directed to the Minister in Charge of Commonwealth Activities in Education and Research. Has the Minister seen a report in to-day's " Canberra Times " of an article by Professor Broadbent, in which he points out that the Australian universities are shelving their television educational responsibilities? Does the Minister consider that the universities should be responsible for educational television? As America and Japan have taken such a lead in this form of telecasting, could the Minister indicate whether the personnel of the universities in those countries accept responsibility for educational television? As it is such a highly specialised technique, and as it is hoped that in the near future a channel will be established in Australia for educational television, has any thought been given to the establishment of an educational television school along the lines of the one in England under the sponsorship of the Nuffield Foundation?
