Television serials had fewer distorted images of the world a decade ago. What has changed, in families or education systems, to make the children believe in fairytale-like sitcoms? Television screens are now full of magic images: do children believe in them. Data is collected from two sample groups, one from a big city and one from a smaller town. We analyse the number of the children watching these serials and the way they are making use of the information in their own lives. Analysis of the discourse of the serials helps understand the material and the way children are represented.
