Inclusion, Education, and Avoidance: The Prime Time Response to September 11.
Gladstone-Sovell, Tracey; Wilkerson, William R.
This paper is an initial examination of prime time television's response to the events of September 11, 2001. Based on a review of the 2001-2002 television season's prime time programs, the study identifies 15 programs (out of 65 that ran the entire season) that incorporated September 11th elements. Themes of these programs are discussed as are the strategies for inclusion of episodes adopted by show producers and writers of dramatic shows for educational purposes. The paper notes that the study's findings recorded a clear and significant response by the entertainment television community. (Contains 2 tables and 37 references.) (Author/BT)
