When children became evil

After WWII, portrayals of ‘evil children’ proliferated in horror and science fiction films in both Britain and the US. But why were children suddenly being presented as dangerous threats rather than innocent victims? And why was society so hungry to consume portrayals of disturbed and abnormal young people after 1945?

This talk by Laura Tisdall was awarded the annual Jacob Bronowski Award Lecture for Science and the Arts by the British Science Association
