Young Viewers Magazine, v3 n3-4 Fall 1980
Designed for media specialists and educators, this issue contains four articles focusing on children and television. The lead article outlines major Australian views on television, analyzing how these concepts determine that country's use of the medium. The second article reviews international developments in children's television highlighted at the 1979 Books and Broadcasting for Children international seminar. Research into children's perceptions and evaluations of television dramas is documented in the third article. The survey focuses on children's views of situation comedies, reruns, and prime time shows rather than children's programs. This issue closes with excerpts from a book which assesses many movies frequently seen on television. (LP)
