The purpose of this study was to investigate the dominant characteristics of some of the most popular television programmes and their effects on school children. 20 school children were selected as subjects. Within-subjects design was used. Each subject responded under different conditions in which independent variable was one of his/her most popular TV. programmes. After every programme subjects were asked to write a story. Content analysis techniques were used. All these three posttest stories were compared with the 'story' they were asked to write before viewing the said programmes. Sign test was applied to the total number of aggressive and altruistic words used in pre-and-post test stories. t-test was also used to see the differences between total number of words used in all the stories. Results confirmed the expected change.
