EPQ PROJECT 2014/15: IS CENSORSHIP ON US TELEVISION DRAMAS TOO RESTRICTIVE?

katie-epqproject:

Hello internet, I need your help.

This year, I am doing my EPQ or Extended Project Qualification, for school. In this, I have to come up with a question, research and compile information relating to my question, all leading into a dissertation length essay where I talk about my findings and evaluate my method of getting there.

For my question, I’m looking to the American Television industry and whether censorship on their content is too strict. From this, I’m looking into whether restricting the kind of content that they are allowed to produce is cut down so far that they cannot include the sort of explicit violence or obscene language that they think would improve their programme, and whether this censorship means writers cannot be as creative as they wish to be. In addition, I will also be looking into programmes like Game of Thrones and other HBO made programmes and how these differ from the content found on other networks.

Research can only get you so far, which is why I’m coming to you: the people of the internet. 

I’m asking for information on how the American Television industry works - information on the difference between cable channels and satellite channels etc; what is and is not allowed to be shown at what times; etc. I’m opening the ask box AND the submission box, and any information would be greatly appreciated.

I’m also going to create a questionnaire asking for opinions on whether YOU believe censorship is too restrictive and why. 

If you could also reblog this post and get it around to as many people as possible, I would be grateful. Thank you!

EDIT: The survey is HERE if you could take it, I’d be very appreciative!

Please read and reblog!

We had conversations about whether or not we should still do it…In the end we thought ‘fuck it,’… It’s still an important thing to talk about and if people draw comparisons to what’s happened with certain YouTubers then by all means let them, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it." - Jack Howard [talking about Jack & Dean’s video Consent]

“Here’s a general rule. When an insult is directed at a woman, consider how it would have sounded directed at a man. If the result is ridiculous, then it’s probably sexist.”

came across this great comment on an article Ruby Tandoh (Great British Bake Off Runner Up) wrote for The Guardian (via aconits)

this has been my rule of thumb for years

What I’ve done cannot be undone. I cannot stop what I’ve put in motion. But, perhaps, I can keep it from ever starting. He was my first hope, and now he is my last.

I’m a screw up. And I plan to be a screw up until my late twenties, maybe even my early thirties.

CHUCK
So please, remember this house and the red door and the white picket fence and the family that we were going to raise together. And remember me, cause if you remember me then you’ll remember that a nerdy guy like me that works at the Buy More could make you happy.
