`NEXT ON NOVA, THE MCI YEARS'

CAN WE LOOK FORWARD TO A Ken Burns documentary on the history of telephony? On Mar. 23, MCI Communications, the nation's No.2 long-distance telephone company, was set to announce that it would form a joint venture with the cash-strapped Public Broadcasting System to develop programming for public TV and other, interactive, media. Under terms of the arrangement, MCI says it will invest at least $15 million in the venture over the next five years. For the phone company, it's a step toward being a content provider, in addition to acting as a distributor of information. Its first programs could be ready to air as soon as next year.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
