- Description: M.Ed (Media Science) , This dissertation is intended to serve the needs of any individual, agency or organisation that wishes to become involved in a development programme designed to uplift the level of destitution or deprivation of a particular group of people. This study focuses on the needs of the South African rural Black population. To date, many people and organisations have been addressing the problem of poverty, but because of the vastness of this problem their efforts can be compared to the proverbial drop in an ocean. Most rural people still live in abject poverty. They are not just relatively poor, but they are living on the rugged edge of sheer survival and their numbers are growing rapidly (Leonard and Marshall, 1982:1).

- Description: M.Ed. (Media Studies) , This study on the utilization of radio and television in formal education has been undertaken for the following reasons: the 1981 HSRC reports on education placed particular emphasis on educational technology of which radio and television are important components; to date little research has been done on this subject in the RSA; in formal education in overseas countries similar problems to those experienced in the RSA are relieved to a large extend through the implementation of radio and television; no television programmes are broadcast during school hours in the RSA, thus making this communication channel available for direct lesson transmission. A number of overseas radio and television projects on formal teaching have been studied with the aim to determine which general tendencies could be singled out on these projects. From these projects particular conclusions have been drawn on the following: viability; resistance against such projects; other media that have been used with radio and television; target groups which could be reached; changes which would have to be effected in the conventional education programme; contact with groups of experts; possible ways to implementation and the role of research. A number of conclusions were reached, amongst others the following: radio and television have to be implemented in formal education in the RSA as soon as possible; radio and television programmes in formal education must initially be aimed selectively at those target groups where the greatest need for such programmes exist; producers of programmes for formal education must co-operate with experts. in relevant fields of study; provision has to be made for the training and retraining of teachers who will employ radio and television programmes. Finally a number of recommendations were made concerning the research which will be imperative for the successful implementation of radio and television in formal education in the RSA.
