Concerning " 'Revelations' of America Won't Be Seen in L.A.," Nov. 29: The documentary "Revelations," what Times critic Howard Rosenberg calls "arguably the season's best documentary hour to date," is a dishonest, manipulative, vicious attack on easy targets, with no journalistic integrity. These arrogant British producers manipulated their subjects and film materials to reinforce their predisposed belief that poor rural West Virginians are ignorant, hypocritical, gullible, war-loving fools--and need a smug BBC film maker to straighten them out. The producers, in their editing rooms, created repeated reenactments, superimposing images from unrelated activities as though they took place at the same time--when in fact they did not. None of these re-creations was identified as such.

Call it upsizing. With the resignation on Tuesday of Stephen Kulczycki, senior vice president for programming and station manager, KCET-TV Channel 28 has opted not for a single replacement but for two new program chiefs. Blaine Baggett, who had been director of public affairs and feature documentaries, is now vice president of program development, scheduling and acquisition.

Regarding " 'Rage' Documentary Puts PBS in Its Own Mideast Standoff," Howard Rosenberg's July 12 column about "Days of Rage": If PBS and public television stations were, as Rosenberg suggested, so afraid of controversy that might offend funding sources and potential donors, why would KCET and most PBS stations have carried a 45-minute Jim Lehrer interview with PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat or a half-hour conversation with King Hussein of Jordan earlier...

Battling an economic slowdown that has put a crimp in corporate giving, the board of directors at KCET Channel 28 on Tuesday approved a budget for next year that will keep the Los Angeles public-television station barely a heartbeat ahead of inflation.

As a relative newcomer to Southern California, KCET programmer Stephen Kulczycki may be forgiven his glib observation that ". . . television has not organized the history of Los Angeles very well" ("Voyage of Discovery to L.A. Past," by Diane Haithman, May 9). Not so, however, for Haithman, who should have researched her subject more diligently before declaring KCET's "The Los Angeles History Project" the first TV series to focus on Southern California's past. Had they been around the local TV vineyards in the years 1964 through 1969, Kulczycki and Haithman would certainly have recalled the highly acclaimed and popular "Ralph Story's Los Angeles," a weekly series on KNXT, Channel 2. In its six years on the air, that venerable series--more than 250 half-hours--affectionately explored L.A.'s history in all its varying shades, poking into its lore and its legends, its movers and shakers and memorable eccentrics.

I was saddened to read Howard Rosenberg's Oct. 26 column on KCET's decision (later rescinded) to cancel "South Africa Now." When I discovered "South Africa Now" on Channel 28 I was pleased to see, for a change, TV journalism that told not only the efforts made by South Africa's government to dissolve apartheid but also the events that directly affect black South Africans. The series has been fair and has reported very well the atrocities that have plagued the indigenous people as well as the country's descendants of Europeans.

With four of its August pledge nights eclipsed by the political conventions, KCET-TV Channel 28 returns Sunday and Monday nights with some rather unusual fund-raising fare. Instead of the traditional sort of upbeat, entertaining pledge programming designed to engage the viewer and enhance membership, KCET is presenting "A Glorious Accident," which it describes as "part adventurous scientific exploration, part mind-opening philosophical sojourn."
