Small Screens: Television for Children
Continuum International Publishing Group Ltd.
The authors of "Small Screens" offer detailed coverage of children's programming in Britain and the USA, considering the changing ways in which children have been defined, addressed and entertained by television. They explore the key genres, including cartoons, costume drama and advertising; discuss significant and controversial programmes including "South Park", "Teletubbies" and "Grange Hill" and look at the experience of dedicated children's channels and of TV-related websites.
