The Influence of Television

Just been to a lecture on the impact of violence shown on television. It obviously has some influence but the clever ones couldn't decide how much.

Do you remember watching educational videos at school that were always atleast 10 years old? and you spent most of the time laughing at the poor graphics, cheesy themetune and in particular the fashion sense - especially the glasses that people wore.
Well, today in a university lecture hall, we watched a Panorama documetary from 1994. This contained the dangers of 'Power Rangers', the threat to society of pirate video cassettes and some researchers in distatefully coloured shirts and overly sized glasses.

I think those glasses affected me more than any violence shown!
