St.Helena is an isolated island
Small community with population of around 5000 habitants
Everyone known each other in society
Research started in 1993 TV was introduced in 1995
AIM to investigate the effects of TV on children

IV introducing TV
DV effect of TV on aggression levels
Questionnaires were given to parents/ teachers to ask about the behaviour of children

Observation were made in playgrounds
Content analysis used to record what and how much TV was watched
Video cameras were placed in classrooms
Very little difference found

was watched, it was not copied.
This was due to high levels of community control and surveillance and parental control.
