The French call it “la télé,” the British, the “tv,” the Australians, the “box,” and many blasé Americans, the “tube,” or even the “boob tube.” “It” is television. Whatever name is given to it, television is recognized worldwide as “one of the most influential instruments for shaping the values, opinions and beliefs of the postwar society.” A report published in the Scientific Australian states that “television watching takes up more time than any other activity our society engages in,” with the possible exception of sleep and, one might add, the working hours of wage earners.
The social impact of television over the past twenty or thirty years has been so great that the subject is still being heavily researched by sociologists and other experts. It has been said that television has had a greater impact on the lives and thoughts of people than any other invention since the printing press. And this it has done so within two or three decades. Moreover, a fifth of the world’s population is still not able to read, but many of these watch TV on private or collective sets.
There can be little doubt that many persons consider TV to be a boon. A great number of elderly, sick or handicapped people would not be without it. TV has become their main source of “company” and companionship. Few people would deny that television has done much to arouse interest in the news, in what is going on locally and worldwide. It has broadened people’s minds and opened up new horizons for them. Televiewers are often less inclined to have a “parochial outlook.” This is all to the good and something to be thankful for. Television can also be very educational, bringing a wide range of knowledge to people who have never had the opportunity to study or travel. Finally TV has brought shows, operas, plays, ballets and symphony orchestras into the homes of the poor.
