Thus, children may report doing homework or household chores while watching television. Some surveys have found that a majority of people, children included, report doing something else while watching, for over half of the programmes they watched the previous day. 2 Direct observation of how children watch television has further revealed that television holds the child’s constant attention a lot less often than we might think. An American study in the 1980s using a time-lapse camera revealed that people may leave their sets on even when they are not actually watching.

Fast-paced programmes do not consistently receive greater attention than slower-paced programmes. In general, programmes with a continuous storyline receive greater attention than segmented, magazine-format shows. The former also tend to be better remembered than the latter. Pace appears to have a greater impact on the tempo of looking among older children, primarily when they are watching programmes with a continuous story. 33 The implications of this evidence for children’s programming are that fast pace does not often enhance attention and may interfere with young viewers’ abilities to understand and learn the content of a programme.

Making one’s own interpretations and drawing conclusions are part of the mental processing by which we all create structures and contexts for what we perceive in the world around us and help us to remember the things we have experienced. This development does not happen all at once. Thus, some studies have found that children’s understanding of television up to about 8 years of age is poor. 5 Although young viewers attend to aspects of programmes that are obviously salient and have meaning or relevance for them, particularly in programmes produced for children, they apparently lack the abilities necessary for a proper understanding of more complex programmes made for older viewers.
