Background:
"New Television" began as a local pilot production of WNET (New York) in 1986. In 1987, WGBH signed on as co-producer, and the shows were aired in Boston and New York. In 1988 and 1989, KCET (Los Angeles) and WETA (D.C.) became producers in association. In 1991, PBS picked up "New Television," and it was broadcast nationally. The following year, the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio, replaced WNET, WETA, and KCET as co-producer with WGBH. In 1993, WGBH ceased to be a co-producer for the series, and the "home base" moved to Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) in Hartford, CT.

"New Television" commissioned, produced, and acquired programming. In its early years, "New Television" broadcast works commissioned by The Contemporary Art Television (CAT) Fund. Increasingly, experimental films as well as video works were broadcast as a part of this series. Many of the later episodes of "New Television" contain works that play with and deconstruct the documentary genre.

Scope:
Mainly consists of moving-image materials relating to programs broadcast as part of the series "New Television." This includes the finished episodes, which are compilations of several works, and the individual pieces that comprise them. Works originally created for the CAT Fund and broadcast as part of "New Television" are cataloged here and cross-referenced with the CAT Fund. Several boxes containing paper records exist. The majority of these relate to the general development of the "New Television" series. Approximately half a box of these paper records document the acquisition or development of individual works.

The WGBH Archives has "New Television" master programs for the period 1993-1996. They were received from Connecticut Public Television (CPTV) in Hartford. These have not been reformatted or cataloged and are listed separately in Appendix D.
