The pilot study was conducted to analyze the feasibility of the study .Using the self structured questionnaire, the investigator collected the data from the samples (Adolescents). The study findings were interpreted using differential and inferential statistics, which shows statistically high significant difference at p<0.001 level among the experimental and control group. The instrument consists of 2 parts: PART I - It consists of age, sex ,type of school, medium of study, religion, father occupation, mother occupation, family monthly income, type of family, type of house, no. of siblings ,availability of play round, no. of hours watching television per day, habit of eating while watching TV, preferable programme in TV.

In the posttest, 20.0% had adequate knowledge, 76.67% had moderately adequate knowledge and 3.33% had inadequate knowledge. 3. In relation to the effectiveness of video assisted teaching on ill effects of excessive watching television, paired ‘t’ test showed high statistical significant difference at p < 0.001 level in experimental group. Among the control group in the 30 samples. ❖ In the pretest, 0.0% had adequate knowledge, 43.33 %has moderately adequate knowledge 56.67% had inadequate knowledge. ❖ In the posttest 63.33% had inadequate knowledge, 36.67 %has moderately adequate knowledge and 0.0% had adequate knowledge. ❖ In relation to the effectiveness of video assisted teaching on ill effects of excessive watching television, paired ‘t’ test showed nil significant difference at p=0.935 level in control group. ❖ In relation to effectiveness of video assisted on ill effects of excessive watching television, the student ‘t’ test showed high statistical significance at p < 0.001 level.
