The company introduced last year as a financially powerful production partner for KCET-TV has been reduced to a tiny operation that has been late on some of its bills, according to several people familiar with the company. In addition, the company relied on mass-market DVDs, and not just its own archive, for some segments of a nostalgia program it makes for the public television station, according to these people. Four people who have worked for Eyetronics Media & Studios said in interviews that they and others had gone without pay for as long as six weeks during the last year.

The corner of 4th and Gless streets in East Los Angeles, once a center of prostitution and drugs, now houses a place of soaring dreams. Inside the gleaming Boyle Heights Technology Youth Center, a classroom of young people battered by hard luck or bad choices is filled with quiet, focused energy. Marcos Avila, a 19-year-old who was kicked out of high school for fighting, is learning to compare and contrast two essays. Vincent Guzman, 18, who left school after his brother was killed in a drive-by shooting, is puzzling over two-step algebraic problems.

Applause to producers Joshua Brand and John Falsey. "A Year in the Life" was such a joy to watch. I wish it would have lasted longer than six hours. It would make a wonderful series. I hope Falsey and Brand continue to make classic programs. April L. Rocha, Santa Monica

I was amazed that no mention was made of Elderhostel, which has been a leader in education travel programs since 1975 when it was founded. With its programs in all 50 states, all 10 provinces in Canada and over 40 countries overseas, it has programs in over 1,000 different colleges, universities and other educational institutions. It had over 190,000 people participate in its programs last year and the number continues to grow.

The headquarters of most big American radio and television networks are high above the towered streets of New York. An exception--the biggest network of them all, geographically--stands on a nondescript boulevard in Sun Valley. The building is full of the usual monitor-crammed control rooms, but some of the engineers at the control boards are in camouflage fatigues or other military uniforms. It is the Armed Forces Radio and Television Service, which broadcasts around the clock to 1.
