Background Information
St. Helena is an island in the middle of
the south Atlantic ocean. It was
discovered by the Portuguese in 1502.
For Centuries it was an important stop
over for ships to Europe from Asia and
South Africa.
The island is one of the most isolated
places in the world. Around 2000 Km
from mainland Africa, St. Helena is only
accessible by boat.
The community on the island is small
and the population is around 5000
habitants, including 1000 children of
school age.

Charlton's Study and Aim
· Dr. Tony Charlton is a psychologist from the

years studying the island of St. Helena fascinated by
the fact that they had no access to television before
March 1995.
· Two years before TV was introduced Charlton started
his study to find out the effects of television on
Children's Behavior.

Charlton found very little difference in the
children's behaviour before and after the
introduction of TV. The island had a very low rate
of behavioural problems in children before the
study and it stayed the same afterwards.
Because the population was so small, with
everyone knowing everyone else, and parents
having a high level of control over their children's
behaviour, the effect of television was reduced.
TV did not have the impact it could have had on
a less isolated environment.
