Television Programming for Children: A Report of the Children's Television Task Force.
Greene, Susan C.; And Others
These two volumes of a 5-volume report on commercial broadcaster compliance with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) 1974 policies on programming and advertising to children provide an overall analysis of children's television, as well as a detailed analysis of broadcast industry compliance. The first volume reviews the social, cognitive, and economic factors that affect the amount, types, and scheduling of children's programs, and discusses policy options open to the FCC with staff recommendations. The analysis of broadcaster compliance in the second volume is based on a series of studies examining the policy impact on the overall amount of programming designed for children 12 years and under, the amount of educational programming, program scheduling, and overcommercialization on children's television and related advertising issues. The effectiveness of the present license renewal form as a method of assessing compliance is also examined. (CMV)
