The Peaceable Kingdom.
The relationship of television to the roles of society in caring for and nurturing the needs of the immature child are reviewed by the co-chairperson of the Committee on Children's Television. The roots of society's concern for the young are traced to Hammurabi and television's duality in denying that it influences children to violence, while selling its persuasiveness as an advertising medium, is decried. The recent statement of the Federal Communications Commission on the duties of broadcasters to provide children's programs that educate and inform as well as entertain is discussed, along with policies of the Federal Trade Commission on advertising in children's programing. A 9-point set of guidelines is proposed for broadcasters to help them upgrade children's programing. (SK)
