VENETIAN FETE
C/U of some Japanese lanterns hanging from wooden beams outside, panning left to show some women attaching decorations to a carnival boat. C/Us of the women arranging flowers and hanging lanterns on the same boat; a pagoda seems to be the focal point. Commentator tells us the spectacular Venetian Fete is held every two years here on the Royal Military Canal at Hythe in Kent. <br/> <br/>Various shots of floats being finished off including an Eskimo scene; a 'savages' scene, where a man is putting some face paint on a young boy; a 'Mayflower' pilgrim ship, the BUAV float, with two dogs being petted and a snack bar float called 'Exploso Bar'. C/U of a balloon with an African face painted on it. M/S people sitting on the river bank watching. <br/> <br/>The fete has obviously started as we see a float being towed by a rowing boat along the river before a large crowd; M/S of the float carrying the Mayor of Hythe along with actor Donald Sinden (who opened the event; he lived in a cottage in Hythe, trivia fans - and might still live there!) and two unidentified women (NB: Donald is not seen in C/U). The next float carries thirteen Mayors of Kent in full regalia, and lots of greenery - quite a comical sight! We then see the float carrying the Carnival Queen in a pink net dress, with two Carnival Queenlets in white at her feet. <br/> <br/>Various colourful themed floats drift past: 'A Tale of Two Cities'; 'Madame Butterfly' (this is the one with the pagoda - it apparently took two months to build); what looks like a French Can-Can cafe scene; 'The Mayflower'; Edith Cavell leaving prison to face the firing squad; Arabian Nights scene (one of the best); 'The old woman who lived in a shoe' (I think it's a man); family watching television; 'School For Beatniks' (I think - sign says 'Down with Elvis'); 'Andy Capp at home'; 'The Ten Commandments'. All intercut with audience shots; children in the crowd eating toffee apples, holding balloons and so on. <br/> <br/>Note: On file is a press release, descriptions of all floats in the fete, a list of the Mayors seen, correspondence and a rather snooty newspaper review. Cuts exist - see other record.

The 90's, episode 307: VIDEO KIDS
00:20 Cold open with Jade Carroll. TV woos you in - you watch it and sometimes you become a TV addict! 1:13 Martha Dewing by Skip Blumberg. Martha Dewing, editor of Children's Video Report, cites some frightening statistics on the prevalence of TV in children's lives. She says that parents don't want their children to be exposed to violence on television, but it happens through ignorance. 03:17 Jade Carroll and Molly Kovel by Dee Dee Halleck. Jade and Molly, two young girls, review the findings of a Weekly Reader survey of 5th and 6th graders. This survey cla ims alarming levels of television viewing amongst children in this age category, including the fact that 23% call themselves TV addicts. However, the girls proudly proclaim themselves to be above this trend. As for Jade: I've gone months without watching TV. 05:51 Media Class by Appalshop and Suzie Wehling. A survey of the communications program at Whitesburg High School in Kentucky. Despite being located in one of the poorest counties in America, they have a newspaper, a weekly radio show and a video class. One girl comments as she puts the paper together: The reason people put what we do down is because we're doing stuff better than what they're doing. They're kind of amazed we got the skills to do that. 10:15 Rockin' Robin by Robbie Leppzer. In Holyoke, Massachusetts, four girls sing and perform Rockin' Robin. 12:48 Ariana by Skip Blumberg. Two little girls are asked what tape they'd like to rent at the video store if they could rent anything. The girls want to see The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover because it is NC-17 and they want to know what adult movies are all about. The girls think that adults are trying to hide funny parts and scary parts from them and that children are missing out on these funny things. 15:48 Philip Morris Protest by Skip Blumberg. Skip Blumberg talks to the security manager (who is smoking a pipe!) at the Philip Morris headquarters in New York about getting an interview, but he is denied on the grounds that he has no press credentials. A group of protesters surround the headquarters. Their grievances include the way Philip Morris targets children and they demand a stop to advertising near schools and playgrounds. Children make up a large portion of those protesters. Anti-smoking activist Rev. Calvin O. Butts attempts to lead a coalition that includes Chicago community activist and Catholic priest Fr. Michael Flager to speak with the heads of the company. They are denied. Butts promises to return and take over the building. 23:51 Erica Becker by Eddie Becker. Erika discusses the issue of teen smoking with her father. She says, Kids do things that are bad because their parents don't let them do stuff... I have friends who are smoking because their parents don't want them to smoke. Her dad counters, So you're saying you don't smoke because your parents encouraged you to smoke? She replies, No, but they say, 'It's your life. You can ruin it if you want to.' 28:26 More from Martha Dewing. We have to remember as adults that the kids are experiencing things now - they don't have any point of reference from three years ago, ten years ago - they're watching TV! 28:46 Copeira by Bart Friedman. Scenes from a class of young people learning the acrobatic martial art of Copeira in Salvador, Brazil. 30:28 Dr. Melanie Tarvalon by Starr Sutherland. Dr. Melanie Tarvalon, a pediatrician, says that black youths between 15-25 have a better chance of being killed than graduating from an institute of higher learning. There's nothing connected with color that makes African-American youth engage in violent behavior... This is a society that has violence everywhere you turn... I think its a mistake to blame African American youth for the violence that occurs in our communities. 32:13 Sean Parker by Fred Bridges. Ex-gang member Sean Parker warns a group of students against getting involved in gangs: Gang banging will take you further than you want to go, make you spend more than you want to pay, and keep you longer than you want to stay. Gang bangers don't live to become administrators or doctors and they don't live to become lawyers and judges. They live to become prisoners... or you will find them in the grave... 35:00 Schooled Down Home by Teresa Tucker-Davies. Piney Woods Academy in Mississippi orchestrates a program that brings down kids from Chicago housing projects to live in a safer environment. Philip Woods, a student in the program says, Everybody should get an opportunity to go down there and get a taste of that atmosphere down there... I thought I'd have to look over my shoulder for the rest of my life [to make sure that there was no one behind me]. 47:11 Irian Jaya by Mary Lou Witz. Kids in Irian Jaya, Indonesia scramble after a yellow balloon. 47:30 Betty Aberlin by Skip Blumberg. Aberlin from Mr. Rogers Neighborhood claims her success in children's programming is due to her arrested state of mental development, claiming she functions better in make believe than in reality. 47:48 Cheers Kids by Skip Blumberg. In Brooklyn, a troupe of young girls perform a rhythmic cheer: Hey Champions, ready for the first beat? Pick it up and bring back down... 49:14 Capital Children's Museum by Eddie Becker.

Rutland, VT. A little boy with a microphone wanders around, interviewing residents of a farm. He comes across some pigs and asks, What do you explain? The pigs oink, to which he replies, Pigs, they don't explain anything. They're just pigs. He then tells the pigs to shut up when their oinking interrupts his investigation of a toy box. Access Only
