The subject of this thesis is Danish children’s television between 1968 and 1972. The main objective is to examine how the Children and Youth department (B&U) of the Danish Broadcasting Corporation understood the function(s) of children’s television in children’s lives. The analysis is carried out on two levels, namely in terms of the program policy and the programs. The analysis is guided by a number of thematic aims, which have been formulated on the basis of previous research in related fields. Is it important to stress, that in opposition to some of the previous research in related fields this thesis perceives children’s television as a complex arena. Thus children’s television in the chosen period is seen as a complex result of the many different views upon the function of pedagogy, children’s (television) culture and public service television’s role in society at the time.
