[Adopted 4-17-2000]
RCTV is a public, educational and government (PEG) access television station. As such, its primary purpose is to permit participation and awareness of governmental and educational programming and, in terms of public access, to act as a resource for the expression of free speech for those in our community. The fulfillment of that primary purpose fosters the secondary purposes which are:
A. 
A tool for communication;
B. 
A means of entertainment and information;
C. 
A means of education of the townspeople of Raymond; and
D. 
To foster the spirit of community.
RCTV is run by the Cable Television Committee of the Town of Raymond under the authority of the Board of Selectmen which is the franchising authority. This authority was given to the Board of Selectmen by a vote of the Town Meeting. The Committee consists of five regular members, an alternate and one representative from the Board of Selectmen and the School Board. Committee members are appointed by the Selectmen for three-year terms.
The Raymond Cable TV Committee does not produce any programming. However, as private citizens outside of the scope of their appointed status, these same people have the same rights as everyone else to use the resource of RCTV to exercise their First Amendment rights. The Cable TV Committee is a volunteer committee, which relies on other volunteers for many functions.
A. 
The purpose of this document is to describe in detail the procedures for use of equipment and facilities belonging to the Town of Raymond and the Raymond School District. Raymond Community Television is committed to the idea that community and public access programming should be community television serving the greater Raymond community. The programs broadcast on RCTV-22 should be for, by and as needed by the community.
B. 
Raymond Community Television is a public, educational and governmental resource provided by the franchise agreement between the Town of Raymond and MediaOne. All access is administered on a nondiscriminatory basis. RCTV is the logo and call name of the channel that originates from the Raymond Town Office or other official origination sites in the Town of Raymond. Priority of programming will be determined by the Raymond Cable Television Committee.
C. 
RCTV has no full-time or part time paid staff or employees.
D. 
The Raymond Cable Television Committee is responsible for overseeing operation of the equipment, control room and studio. The Raymond Cable Television Committee has been chartered by the Raymond Selectmen with this task and operates under bylaws established and approved by them.[1]

Program timing and labeling.
(1) 
All tapes should be clearly labeled with the following information on both the tape box and the tape itself:

Title.
(b) 
Producers name.

Date completed.
(d) 
Total running time.
(e) 
Pre-roll.
(2) 
Program lengths should be timed from the beginning of active program video or audio to the last active video or audio (usually the copyright credit). "Pre-roll" is defined as the amount of time from the head of the tape to the beginning of active program video or audio.
E. 
Equipment sign-out procedures. Reservations for remote equipment packages can be made by filling out a reservation form (RCTV-3) at least three days in advance. Reservations are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. On the day of pickup, arrangements must be made with an RCTV coordinator. If there is no reservation form filled out prior to that day, or if the form is incomplete, then no equipment will be released. Camcorder sign-out is limited to two weekends per month plus two weekday/overnights per month (for a total of four). Equipment must be returned when specified on the reservation sheet. Failure to do so may lead to temporary revocation of sign-out privileges. Sign-in/out times should be arranged with the access coordinator. Upon return of equipment, all items not normally belonging in camcorder cases (i.e., extra microphones, cables, lights, tapes, etc.) should be removed. Batteries should be fully charged before returning equipment. The equipment must be returned in the condition it left in. If there are any problems with equipment while using it, notify staff immediately upon return. Evidence of the mishandling of equipment can lead to revocation of sign-out privileges.

Production control room policy. Requests for production time will be made using reservation form (RCTV-4). Production time is signed out on calendars posted in the control room.
G.

(2) 
Copies of raw footage may be obtained only with the consent of the producer involved. "Raw footage" is defined as the unedited raw material, which, in its present form, is unfit for airing due to technical or content reasons. Programming shot live on tape and aired in the same fashion (i.e., studio programs or sports events and government meetings) do not qualify as raw footage since the actual tape used for shooting is also the tape that is aired.
(3) 
Videotape copies. No master copies of videotapes will be released.
(a) 
Copies of public meetings (as defined by RSA 91-A) and all other programming released for duplication are available for a fee of $15.

One copy of public board meetings will be made for the convening board. This copy becomes the responsibility of the board chairperson. Each board will be responsible for storing its own tapes and determining how long they will be archived.
H. 
Program content. RCTV requires all access users to accept full responsibility for program content. This means that access users alone are accountable for what they communicate. Therefore, access users should become familiar with local and federal laws and any other regulations that apply to program content and its cablecast.
(1) 
The following types of programming will not be produced or cablecast. Appeals to any program rejections will be made first to the Cable Committee and finally to the Board of Selectmen.

Programming, soliciting or promoting unlawful conduct.
(c) 
Material which constitutes libel, slander, invasion of privacy or which might violate other local, state or federal law.
(d) 
Programs containing material which violates copyright, trademarks or service marks. Use of such material generally requires obtaining appropriate rights from music licensing organizations, publishers, representatives, copyright holders and any other person as to make necessary for cablecast. Producers will be asked to furnish written authorization for use of such materials.
(e) 
Program material that creates the immediate danger or damage to property or injury to persons, or the substantial obstruction of law enforcement or other governmental functions or services, or by deprivation of a legal right of a person by threat, threat of force or physical action, or the creation of a public nuisance.
(f) 
The direct or indirect presentation of lotteries or lottery information.
(2)

(b) 
Direct sales or provision of commercial products, businesses or services during a program.

(b) 
All other productions (government, educational or public access) should be edited for final times in fifteen-minute increments, (i.e. 15 minutes, 30 minutes, 45 minutes, etc.).
(3) 
Programming priority. Priority of programming will be determined by the Raymond Cable Television Committee.
Public access programming is programming which has been produced by the public. When the program is produced using RCTV facilities and equipment, it means that the production arrangements are made by the volunteer public access producers and the crew is primarily volunteer. In this case RCTV Committee members are largely there in an advisory capacity, to provide training, program proposal review, assistance in lining up crews, basic studio set up and occasional crew assistance. When an access user brings in a prerecorded tape for broadcast, it is also considered public access. In both these instances RCTV, by federal law, may not edit or control content.
A. 
Public access producers. All residents of the Town of Raymond age 18 and over are eligible to become public access producers after attending an initial orientation/training class and maintaining any and all fees required. Minors between age 16 and 18 must have parental authorization (Form RCTV-5). Parents assume responsibility for liabilities and equipment damage that may result from the minor's membership. Private citizens or nonprofit groups who use the equipment to produce programming seen on RCTV and/or the facilities of RCTV may have their programs broadcast. This usage is free of charge and on a first-come first-served basis. Training on the use of equipment is scheduled on a request basis. Arrangements for classes can be made by calling 895-4735 ext 104. A member of the Committee will return your call.
B. 
Workshop classes. Public access producers are required to take a four-hour orientation class before working with equipment. During this class producers will be given safety information on studio and remote equipment. Additional advanced workshops will be given on various subjects on an as-needed basis.
C. 
Public access programming.
(1) 
Procedures.
(a) 
Producers must complete a program proposal form (Form RCTV-2) for each show (or series) they plan to produce. Producers are responsible for coordinating their own technical crew (if needed); only trained RCTV volunteers are allowed to use equipment.
(b) 
All programs must be submitted at least 24 hours before they are scheduled to be cablecast, along with a cablecast form (Form RCTV-3) indicating the desired date and time of cablecasting, as well as any controversial content (if any). Failure to notify staff of possible controversial content in advance may result in disciplinary action.
(2) 
Copyright and liability.
(a) 
All editorial control and responsibility and ownership of content of public access programming lies with each program's producer.
(b) 
RCTV reserves the right not to air any program which violates copyright, obscenity or libel laws; which is in any way commercial in nature; or which is unviewable for technical reasons. RCTV recommends obtaining signed release forms for minors who appear in videotaped productions.
(3) 
Controversial programming. All comments and complaints about any program will be forwarded to the producer of said program; all producers must supply RCTV with a current valid phone number which will be made available to the general public upon request. RCTV reserves the right to schedule adult-oriented or controversial programming at specific times.
(4) 
Political candidates and access.
(a) 
FCC regulations applying to political candidates and issues do not apply to public access. The two rules most referred to are the equal time rule, which applies to political candidates, and the fairness doctrine, which stated that broadcast programmers must give time to diverse sides of an issue. The FCC personal attack rule also does not apply to public access.
(b) 
No paid advertising will be accepted on behalf of candidates for public office or political parties on RCTV.
(c) 
Public access users are under no legal obligation to show any view other than their own. Community residents with diverse viewpoints are encouraged to use public access to express those views.
D. 
It is up to each producer to contact his or her own crews. Phone lists will be given out on a request basis only; also, producers may put an ad on the Community Bulletin Board for crew for a program. Those wishing not to use their home phone number can use the cable office phone number in the Town Office that has voice mail.
E. 
Release forms. Producers must obtain signed release forms for person(s) appearing on a program which will be cablecast. This is especially important when taping children under 18 (in which case a signature is needed by the child's parent or legal guardian). These forms will be kept on file at RCTV. Exceptions to this rule include videotaping of public events such as government meetings or sporting events or in some other public location or forum.
F. 
Children. Young children are not allowed in the studio unsupervised. Since the use of video production equipment requires one's full attention, supervision must be by an adult who is not involved with any production during their stay. However, because of safety concerns, it is strongly encouraged that children not be brought into the studio at all. This includes guests of shows as well as producers and audience members.
G. 
Live programming. Producers who wish to do live on-air programming must meet the following prerequisites:
(1) 
They must provide the access coordinator with a detailed run-down or script of the show's guests and subject, as well as full crew list.
(2) 
They must schedule program at least two weeks in advance.
H. 
Nonlocal programming. RCTV does provide airtime for programs produced outside of its facilities and by nonlocal residents. A local resident must sponsor programs produced outside of Raymond in order to air. The local resident will take responsibility for the program's content, as well as provide 10 signatures of Raymond residents or prior approval by the Raymond Cable TV Committee. Also, RCTV reserves the right not to air nonlocal programming based on technical quality or availability of airtime. Programming must abide by same rules as public access programming. RCTV Forms 4.0 and 4.1 must be completed.
A. 
"Government access" is defined as in the glossary as programs produced by staff or elected officials of the Town of Raymond and may include coverage of government meetings (as defined by RSA 91-A), profiles of Town services as well as servicing the communications needs of various Town departments.
B. 
Government access producers and users are subject to all sections of this policy manual. Government meetings and productions are those sanctioned by a particular board or Town department. When Town officials or employees participate in or produce any programming not under this category, they do so under the category, rules and procedures of public access.
A. 
"Educational access" is defined in the glossary as programs produced by the faculty and students of the Raymond School District and Raymond-based private educational institutions.
B. 
Educational access producers and users are subject to all sections of this policy manual. Educational meetings and productions are those sanctioned by a particular school, the SAU or School Board. When school officials or employees participate in or produce any programming not under this category, they do so under the category, rules and procedures of public access.
