[image:171 width=150 align="left" hspace=3 border=1]On October 17th, Cambridge Community Television had a 'Brown Out' on its channels and web site to draw attention to three bills pending in Congress that threaten the current telecommunications regulatory structure. A program taped that day, "Brown Out: The Threats to Public Access," was moderated by CCTV Board President Joe Douillette, and features Congressman Michael Capuano, cable consultant Rika Welsh, and a studio audience. The program is a timely look at how changes in technology dictate public policy. In the first section viewers are provided with a brief history of public access television, and an explanation of the bills. In the final segment, the tables are turned as the studio audience discusses the need for everyone to take action to ensure that local Public, Educational and Governmental access channels are protected.
