Abstract: There are no bystanders in the debate about television violence. Everyone is either a believer in its cathartic properties : "Exposure to properly presented violence acts as a therapeutic release for anger and self-hatred which are present in almost everybody" (Baldwin and Lewis, 1972), or an opponent of its evil influences on modern society : "Violence on television encourages violent forms of behaviour and fosters moral and social values about violence in daily life that are unacceptable in civilised society" (National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence, 1970). This study did not take sides in the debate by questioning the likely effects of television violence. Rather it sought to describe the frequency and nature of television violence in Singapore.
