The Gatekeeper: My Thirty Years as a TV Censor

Alfred R. Schneider, Author, Kaye Pullen, With, Michael Dann, Foreword by Syracuse University Press $26.95 (161p) ISBN 978-0-8156-0683-3
Whatever sex, violence, colorful language and other racy behaviors TV audiences glimpsed on ABC between 1960 and 1990, they have Alfred R. Schneider, the former head of ""standards and practices,"" to thank or to blame. In The Gatekeeper: 30 Years as a TV Censor, written with Kaye Pullen, he discusses firsts like The Day After, All in the Family, The Twilight Zone and That Certain Summer, an early '70s show on which a man tells his son that he's gay. Alternately businesslike and juicy, Schneider's revelations are the nuts and bolts of a powerful if thankless task. ( Apr.)
