This thesis investigates how the news and documentary program, “NNN
Document,” has reported the nuclear problem.
This is important because previous studies have not clarified regional differences
and diachronic changes in programs produced by local broadcasting
stations that represent how people feel where nuclear power stations were
Seventy-eight documentaries about nuclear power from“ NNN Document,”
which is produced by 29 local broadcasting stations of the NTV group, were
analyzed. These sources were examined by analyzing changes in the way in
which the stations represented people statements.
This research discovered the following. From 1970 until the Chernobyl
disaster, many different people appeared in the documentaries, but after the
Chernobyl disaster, the perspective of people living in areas suffering radiation
damage and depopulated areas close to nuclear power stations came to the
forefront. During the 2000’s, the number of documentaries about nuclear power
decreased sharply. After the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, the lives of
the refugees were portrayed from the point of view of their places of refuge.
Thus, it is shown how “NNN Document” has come to more closely represent
the opinions of citizens in the news about nuclear power generation.
