Collins, W. Andrew; Wellman, Henry M.
Communication Research--An International Quarterly, v9 n3 p380-98 Jul 1982
Reaffirms previous findings that young viewers' representations of televised dramatic narratives are incomplete and disorganized, compared to older viewers' comprehension of these programs. Also demonstrates that the information younger children retain from programs was likely to reflect stereotyped actions and events, cued by isolated, familiar occurrences in the televised portrayal.
