Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This study examines the reporting of child deaths in the British media between 1980 and 1998. Specifically it analyses the amount and type of coverage given to the deaths of children where the person responsible for the death is known to the child (usually a parent and/or step parent). It also seeks to identify the key factors which affect the volume of coverage i specific cases and to account for changes in patterns of coverage over time.
