DEAD RECKONING

1) Plan how to record the deaths you see or hear reported while viewing television over one week. You need to be able to compare the causes and numbers of deaths in news reports and documentaries with those seen in fictional stories.

Here is an example of how it could be done:

On Monday you are watching a murder mystery in which two people are killed. One is a student and another is a man about 50 years old. Then you watch the news. It is mentioned that 15 people were killed in a coach crash and that some famous person has died of an illness.
