Carré blanc et signalétique télévisée en France, 1961-1998

Le Temps des médias n°1, automne 2003, p.65-76.

French society underwent swift changes between 1961 and 1998. In the moral field, freedom and individualism grew to reach news areas. What once seemed unthinkable to show for is now considered without a second thought. However, the will to allow or forbid arose very early on. Since television spread out, it seemed normal to protect youths against visual violence. This violence comes in two distinct forms : first, there’s physical violence, or psychological, as can be seen in fiction, mostly, and secondly, there’s pornography. While they didn’t censor nor forbid, networks and programs managers deemed it necessary to guide parental choice, with a care to protect young children against excesses. 1961’s « carré blanc », followed by 1996’s and 1998’s new rating symbols, were the answers given to those who wanted to draw lines.
