Televizing the Museum

Nature volume 162, page 18 (03 July 1948) | Download Citation



THE Cleveland Museum of Natural History has again shown commendable enterprise in extending its educational influence to a much larger public than habitual museum visitors (The Explorer : Bulletin of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, 94 ; 1948). Through the courtesy of the American broadcasting station, W.E.W.S., it is now presenting a monthly television programme called "Your Museum of Natural History". Two general programmes have already been televized, one dealing with the timely subject of the Navaho Indians and the other with the recent gift to the Museum of the works of John J. Audubon, including the famous early nineteenth-century English prints of flaveli. There is also a regular weekly television programme built round the Museum‘s explorers clubs for children; subjects so far presented include the Apache Indians, fur-bearing mammals, care of pets, bird migration and signs of spring.
