Commencing in 1972, Portable Channel produced a series called 'Homemade TV' in conjunction with WXXI-TV, PBS affiliate in Rochester, NY. Portable Channel produced programming, often documentary in nature, for broadcast. In January 1974, Steina and Woody made a half hour episode called 'The Electronic Image' for the 'Homemade TV' series.
