Anthropo-Scene The Fictional Treatment of Environmental Issues on British TV

Abstract : The British media, particularly television, have played an important role in stimulating interest in environmental issues which began hitting the headlines from the 1970s onwards. One of the most memorable examples was afforded by the first TV coverage of the brutal clubbing to death of seal pups in Canada in the 1970s. It had a phenomenal impact that resulted in huge public outrage and eventually led to the banning of the importation of seal products into America and into the European Community. Gradually, green topics have spread to all TV programmes from documentaries, to soap operas and even quizzes.
