  The influence of television on children   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Television influences both children's prosocial and antisocial behaviors (Ahammer and Murray, 1979; Bandura, 1986; Comstock and Paik, 1991; Strasburger, 1995), as well as their attitudes about race and gender (Liebert and Sprafkin, 1988).
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).

The Television Collection represents the evolution of the technological means of generating, storing and displaying moving images by electro-mechanical and electronic means from the late 19th century until the present.
Whilst the Collection is not concerned with the acquisition and preservation of television programmes, it does include a range of television and cinema advertising which demonstrates both production styles and technologies, and complements the advertising material held in other NMPFT Collections.
Typical of the fl and white television cameras of the late 1950s and 1960s, this camera has a turret of five lenses which can be selected using the small handle at the rear of the camera.

 Television's Effect On Reading And Academic Achievement | MediaWise.org   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Television’s impact on reading and other academic skills depends not only on the amount of television watched, but also on what is being watched as well as the age of the child (Reinking, 1990).
When television displaces the time a child would otherwise spend on reading practice, that child is delayed in acquiring reading skills (Comstock, 1991).
In a long-term study of high schoolers, researchers found that viewing educational television programs as pre-schoolers was associated with higher grades, more reading, less aggression and more value placed on academics when those children reached high school (Anderson, et al., 2001).

 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.

 Raymond Federman - REMEMBERING THE BEST TELEVISION SHOW OF 1991
All previous wars were replayed after the victory or after the defeat [depending which side you were on], but this war was not re-presented instead it was presented, and therefore it could be edited self-reflexively while being played, and that too is Postmodern.
The fact that the Gulf-War Television Show was being played twenty-four hours a day in America is also interesting, because as such it was a program that the entire family could watch, the grown-ups as well as the children.
I said that the Gulf-War was made for television, and for us back home, the war was but a set of images -- exotic images which were never frightening or disturbing since they were made for the whole family to watch.

 Academy of Television Arts & Sciences
In May of 1991, the Television Academy moved into its new headquarters at the corner of Lankershim and Magnolia Boulevards, replete with an enormous fountain dominated by a 27-foot Emmy Award statue.

 [No title]
Pappas argues that the inclusion of statutory and regulatory provisions for complaints based solely on failure of cable operators to meet their channel position obligations demonstrates that its concern here about channel position is not a trivial matter.
It argues further that the 1991-1992 Television Market Guide's listing of KFWU in the Chico-Redding ADI instead of the San Francisco ADI is not changed by the fact that Pappas now claims KFWU is located in the San Francisco ADI.
As noted earlier, Section 76.55(e)(1) of the Commission's Rules defines a commercial television station's market as its ADI, and the ADIs to be used for purposes of implementing the mandatory carriage rules are those published in Arbitron's 1991-1992 Television Market Guide.
