This article reconsiders the problem of the brain death and the organ transplantation on the TV news program. Until now, the organ transplantation from the children who are under fifteen has been forbidden in the Japanese law. Now this law is to be amended. This is the problematic issue about the knowledge of the human life and death. So I take one news program about the organ transplantation. And, by the questionnaire method, I survey the effects of this program to the viewers. They tend to be oriented to agree with the amendment of the organ transplantation law in general.
