Television

Despite the development of the Internet, television is still one of the most important sources of information. It plays such a significant role in people’s everyday lives that it’s almost impossible to imagine how we would live if there were no TV. One can argue that for many people television is no longer the main source they get the latest news from but it is practically impossible, however, to find a family that doesn’t have a television. We certainly don’t gather around the television any more as our parents used to every evening in the 70-90s to watch a new fabulous film or discuss the latest news.
There are a lot of advantages making television so popular. The main reason why so many people choose this means of getting information and entertainment is its simplicity and convenience. All you have to do is to press a button and sink comfortably into a chair.
The main problem of television is that little by little we become dependent on TV. It’s lucky that more and more people are beginning to go in for sports these days. Sports usually take us a great deal of time, so we become less dependent on TV.
Now let’s speak about different kinds of people working on television and qualities these people should have. It’s still quite difficult to appear on television without the following qualities: intelligence, talent, beauty, leadership qualities and energy. It’s far more interesting to listen to a football report full of energy than to “a peaceful story” a commentator hankers to tell you. Similarly, weather forecasts would not be so exciting if announcers were “plain”. There are plenty of arguments for and against television but it’s however unlikely to be a thing of the past in the near future.
In our time there’s such a wide variety of programmes that everyone can choose something he’s particularly interested in. For instance, if you are an animal lover you may be fascinated to watch such channels as “Animal Planet” or “BBC One”. The latter is not a channel broadcasting programmes only about animals but nevertheless the programmes of that kind come out on BBC One regularly. However, the most popular programme is still news (or is that better to say: however, news still remains the most popular programme?). As it was said above news is the main reason why so many people have a TV set at home. What can be of more interest than to watch the latest news report from the other end of the world? I fully agree that one can read the same news on the Internet: a great many sites give you the opportunity to follow any event taking place in the world every minute. Nevertheless, there are a few channels which have roll captions giving you the same opportunity. One thing that the Internet cannot give you now is picture transmission. Many will start arguing that it can but let them realize that there are still a lot of people using modems to browse the web. It’s quite difficult for them to download a video clip with the latest news.
To sum up, I would like to say that television will remain one of the most important source of information in the years ahead, regardless of the development of other sources.
