"The Violence on Greek Television"
|This study of violence on Greek television follows up research,
which the author initially undertook in 1996. Papathanassopoulos
repeated his research in 1999, monitoring for two weeks the
television programmes of the same five television channels as
in the first research in order to gauge the amount of violence
present on Greek television as well as the character of its
portrayal. The book compares the findings of the two studies.
The results show that the amount of violence has increased threefold
compared to 1996, especially on the news programmes. Violence
has also increased in entertainment programming. The majority
of violent television acts come from imported programming, mainly
from the US.
