Pornography and Media Violence....continued
Children often watch adult films on TV in their bedrooms
where parents neglect to supervise their viewing. Many stay up beyond the
9.00pm watershed, and in any case they can record programmes. Satellite
channels from abroad show blue movies, and school teachers witness copy-cat
behaviour from what they watch.
The sad thing about children's viewing is that they have no
particular moral standpoint from which to evaluate things, and so often get
fantasy mixed up with fact. Pressure groups are strongly recommending that all
actual and visual portrayal of rape and sexual violence be eliminated from TV,
video and films. TV classifications are not strong enough.
