Author: Arthur C. Clarke
Date: 1971-12-17
Type: ESSAY
Language: English
Note: According to the data in Locus1 and Clarke's notes in The View from Serendip, this piece consists of a speech delivered to State Department on 20 August 1971 (aka INTELSAT address or ''The United States of Earth'') plus an article also known as ''Schoolmaster Satellite'' but which usually appears without title. The essay, the whole of it presumably, was first published in London Daily Telegraph from December 17, 1971.
Synopsis: Clarke recalls a curious experiment from the 1970s: using satellite television for educating the superstitious people of India.
