Local middle school aged children have a chance to learn about the basics of producing a cable TV show while enjoying a week of summer fun. Burlington Cable Access Television is offering its annual Video Vacation Week Aug. 15-19 from 2-5 p.m.  The free educational program is open to all Burlington children entering the sixth through ninth grades. Participants are taught the fundamentals of video production both in the field and in the studio and gain exposure to BCAT's facilities. Over the week, they will collaborate on the production and editing of a half-hour video program that will be aired later on BCAT and on line. Each child will have the chance to participate in all aspects of the production, from serving as director to operating the camera and lighting and appearing on the video. The program will be taught by BCAT production coordinators Cory McNeil and Tad Stephanak, who also facilitate Video Voyagers, a similar program that BCAT offers for middle school aged students during the school year. Video Vacation Week will be held at the BCAT studios in the back of the high school, 123 Cambridge St.  To sign up or for more information, call 781-273-5922, e-mail BCAT@BCATtv.org, or go to www.BCATtv.org. --John Laidler, Globe Correspondent
