All in a Tube (Series) (1979-1981)

In the spirit of problem-solving rather than didacticism, All in a Tube was designed by Rita Shelton Deverell for children. Religious Television Associates put up the money to develop the scripts and for Ms. Deverell's time and travel. She persuaded five private TV stations to participate. Each station assigned a producer, who worked with Ms. Deverell to develop simple dramas to present problems of value judgment which would concern children. In addition, a values game called "Crunch" was devised, in which children would role-play value dilemmas until a buzzer sounded. There were three 13-episode series, the last of which included parents engaged in role-playing with their children or with young people in general. A study guide for viewers' use was also promoted.
