  The influence of television on children
While early television commercials were criticized for being overwhelmingly biased in favor of males, a study of commercials broadcast between 1971 and 1985 indicated a better balance of male and female characters (Bretl and Cantor, 1988).
Another aspect of television advertising that is overwhelmingly a masculine province is voiceovers and narration, in which 83-90 percent of the voices are male (Basow, 1992).
Gender role stereotypes seen on television are, in turn, reinforced by parents, friends, and school, contributing to the child's sense of what it means to be male or female in society.

 Proclamation 5549 -- National Children's Television Awareness Week, 1986
Television is a medium of enormous potential capable of bringing a myriad of sights and sounds into our homes, schools, and places of work.
Quality television programming can open wide the windows of curiosity for children and enable them to share in the wonder of man's experience -- whether in history, politics, religion, culture, or sports.
Television can also be a powerful tool in convincing children to say ``no'' to illegal drugs and ``yes'' to life.

 Television Violence and Behavior: A Research Summary. ERIC Digest.
Several variables in the relationship between television violence and aggression related to characteristics of the viewers and to the portrayal of violence are identified.
While few would say that there is absolute proof that watching television caused aggressive behavior, the overall cumulative weight of all the studies gives credence to the position that they are related.
Essentially, television violence is one of the things that may lead to aggressive, antisocial, or criminal behavior; it does, however, usually work in conjunction with other factors.

 Television Violence: Christian Resource Centre (Bermuda)
It is certainly true that television violence does not account for all the causes of children's aggression, and it is also true that some children are a great deal more likely to be affected by television violence than others, and that it is these children who are likely to be potentially more aggressive anyway.
The age of eight is critical in the relationship between television violence and the development of aggression, because of the cognitive and emotional developments that occur at this age.
One explanation may be that television provides children with rather narrow and stereotypical characters, so that they have relatively little opportunity to express their increased sophistication if they choose television characters as heroes.(36) In one study, children who chose family members or other real people as their heroes did show a more sophisticated understanding.

 NTN Pty Ltd and NBN Ltd v The State [1986] PNGLR 167 (21 August 1986)
Whilst it may be that cable television will be controlled on a similar basis to broadcast television after the conclusion of the Public Inquiry and the introduction of legislation, that position does not apply for the time being.
On 10 July 1986 the paper was considered and the decision to advise the Head of State was made and conveyed the same day.
It is abundantly clear from the Agreement that legislation would be enacted to regulate television but I re-iterate that it was not the agreement of the parties, at least from my reading of the whole Agreement, that NTN could not commence transmission before such legislation was in effect.

 ED272855 1986-00-00 Television Viewing and Reading. ERIC Digest.
Data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) (1986) indicate a continued deficiency in advanced reading skills among students in all age groups and a leveling-off of the upward trend in the reading performance of 9- and 11-year-old children between 1980 and 1984.

The purpose of the ATSC is to facilitate and develop voluntary technical standards for an advanced television system to replace the aging American NTSC television standard.

 U.S. Senate: Art & History Home > Historical Minutes > 1964-Present > Live Television from the Senate ...
Few households in the United States owned television sets in November 1947 when the Senate, for the first time, allowed the televising of a committee hearing.
From the 1950s through the 1970s, televised Senate hearings played a major part in shaping public opinion on topics ranging from organized crime and alleged communist infiltration of federal agencies to the war in Vietnam and the Watergate scandals.
By early 1986, Majority Leader Bob Dole and Democratic Leader Robert C. Byrd worried that the lack of television coverage was transforming the Senate into the nation’s forgotten legislative body.
