BY JONATHAN YARDLEY
If there is anyone at this University who needs a bigger
office, it is Earl Wynn, chairman of the Department of Radio,
Television and Motion Pictures.
This is evident not merely because Mr. Wynn is a large
man who likes to stretch his legs and relax; his tiny cubicle
in ancient Swain Hall is filled to the brim with pamphlets,
books, framed citations and tape recordings. If he isn't given
more room soon, he may be forced to move his headquarters
into one of the studios.
A visitor to the office is likely to see Mr. Wynn poring
over a report on developments in education television, smok
ing one of the sixty or seventy cigarettes he demolishes daily.
He speaks with fervent devotion of the Communications
Center that has been his love since he returned to Chapel
Hill in 1946 after an assignment making training films for
"It suddenly occurred to me when I was making these
films," he said, "that the University should have a produc
tion media for delivering information to the people of North
Carolina. I talked with Billy Carmichael and Sam Selden and
Frank Graham when I got . out of the Navy, and their en
thusiasm made the Communications Center possible. We called
it that because its mission is to carry the University of North
Carolina to the people of North Carolina.
"This mission is non-academic. It is educational, not only
on a secondary and collegiate level but also on an adult level.
That's why we carry programs pn WUNC-TV like 'Meet the
Press' and 'Chet Huntley Reporting.' We used to be quite a
lot stronger in motion pictures than we are now, but then we
began to channel those motion picture activities into televi
sion. We're on our way back now, and we've done quite well
in the past. Here. I'll show you."
Mr. Wynn jumped out of his chair and examined the ten
various certificates on the wall, most of which cite the work
of the Communications Center in different fields. He pointed
to one that cited the Center's work in motion pictures.
One of the subjects that the enthusiastic, volatile chair-
TVMP's Earl Wynn, Carolina Personality O
man gets most excited about is closed circuit teaching, an ex
periment he hopes to put into action soon.
"I think that a university has a responsibility to experi
ment in programming. For that reason, we have an obliga
tion to find out what closed circuit teaching can and cannot
"We would pick out certain of the disciplines whose pro
grams seem suited to television and sec, consequently, if we
can't teach larger numbers in smaller groups. Just think of
the advantages! It occurs to mc that Political Science 41 has
a great many sections. It cannot draw on its best faculty for
each section, but television can get the best teacher and ask
him to teach only that in which he is best; you could have
four or five teachers discussing their specialties, and thus get
the best teaching available on television.
"Yes, we do know that you can teach as well on televi
sion if not considerably better. The student gets a clear pic
ture of the instructor; he certainly can't get that in a lecture
room with three or four hundred other students. Directness
of teaching is of extreme importance, and when the teacher
looks that lens right in the eye he is looking each student
right in the eye. But in the end, of course, it is the quality of
instruction that determines the quality of the teaching, and
we would demand that."
A glimmer of excitement came into Mr. Wynn's eyes as
he reached for another cigarette.
"I'll tell you something wonderful that's in the wind.
The Ford Foundation gave WGBII the Boston educational
radio station a grant to investigate whether or not Mego
polis (the heavily populated urban area stretching from Bos
ton to Norfolk and west) would be interested in a networked
FM educational radio system. .
"The study was favorable, and now the network has
been worked out from Boston to Washington. This week I
am going to Lynchburg to discuss with my friend Cile Tur
ner the singer and some citizens of that town the possi
bility of extending this network to Lynchburg. If they agree
to this and I believe they will Chapel Hill can expect to
have network service within a year and a half. And if that
comes true, we will be able not only to receive programs but
also to send them out.
"It also seems that within about three years the Ford
Foundation plans to multiplex the network. That is, each sta
tion would have three channels for educational purposes. So
we could broadcast, say, to high school students, to college
-. .v.xv.v. , .-.y. . h. ft
RTVMP's Earl Wynn
students and to adults all at the same time on different fre
quencies. This has great possibilities."
As he talked of educational radio and television, Mr.
Wynn's enthusiasm was undisguised. On commercial mass
media, however, his excitement waned noticeably.
"Radio has become much more local than network now:
NBC's 'Monitor' is the only national show that is carried
everywhere and listened to regularly. You see, what worries
me is that radio has become not a property for community
service but to be bought and sold solely to earn profit. I don't
think many owners have any real feeling for what the FCC
calls 'in the public interest, convenience and necessity.' But
the FCC is aware of this, and changes will be made. One
suggestion is that a new buyer must keep a station for at
least three years. That way he cannot be in it just for the
quick profit; in three years he can lose a lot of money unless
he serves the public.
"I mean service in terms of the public's needs . . . it's
religious needs, welfare needs, educational needs and enter
tainment needs. Radio and television must be entrenched
in the community. And I do not think television is meeting
its responsibility either. But then I do not believe a lot of
these things I hear about violence and so forth in children's
"Why when I was a child I read 'Jack and the Beanstalk'
and 'Treasure Island' and so forth; those books are loaded
with violence! We should face the fact that human beings
thrive on violence. But this violence can and must be con
trolled. "Very simply, it can be said that commercial radio and
television are facing the challenge of educational networks
and stations. The challenge is making commercial networks
wake up. Why else are we seeing so many good things these
days like the plays and news broadcasts and documentaries?
And 'The Wizard of Oz.' Did you see that? It was wonder
ful! As long as programs like that are being done, there is a
great deal of hope for the mass media."
