Scope and content

Series consists of records created and accumulated by Flemington in his work with Religious Television Associates (RTA). RTA was founded as a production and consultation entity by the United, Anglican and Roman Catholic churches in 1964 and joined for a time – or on a per-project basis – by the Baptist, Presbyterian and Lutheran churches and other faith communities.

Records in this series include: correspondence; meeting minutes; files related to Flemington’s work as a producer on the CTV show Spectrum (1965-1968); research notes, correspondence and briefs related to RTA’s advocacy work on behalf of Interchurch Broadcasting/Interchurch Communication (ICC), including a study on cable television and community; production notes for a radio and television advertising campaign to raise funds for world development work on behalf of the Interchurch Campaign Committee; research and production files related to Flemington’s films on the topic of international development including three films about Southeast Asia for the CBC television show Man Alive: “How Long Does It Take a Tree to Grow Here? (Philippines), “No Way To Say No” (West Irian, Indonesia), and “They’ll Tell Me When the Tread’s Gone” (Malaysian territory in Borneo); research and production files for films about Japan: "Deep Currents Moving" (for the United Church of Canada) and "To Remember the Fallen" (for CBC’s Man Alive); correspondence, research notes, and draft scripts for two films about Brazil co-produced between RTA and Danchurchaid: “The Journey: From Faith to Action” and “People of No Interest”.

Also included are records related to the founding of Agency Film Seminar, an international group of filmmakers and producers for church agencies, brought together by RTA, Danchurchaid (Denmark), the World Council of Churches, and the World Association for Christian Communication. Flemington was the founding secretary/communicator.
