Stepping Down From The Modern World [Sep. 15th, 2013|09:23 am]
Tony Grist
We got rid of our TV. We advertised it on Freecycle and it was gone the same evening. A pleasant young couple from a few streets away walked over and took it. The young man carried it off in his arms.

Will we replace it? Maybe, but not yet.

And why did we do it?  Because silence is golden. Because we'd both rather read books. Because living at my mother's I'm sick of having the hairy bikers roaring at me from the corner of the room, because the BBC pays its managers way too much...

I've been thinking about getting a telly again. Though I'm not sure I'd watch it much.

I do miss the educational aspects of television... And I think the BBC does still make good history and art history programmes, occasionally, even if they've dumbed down in every other sphere. I no longer look to them, or any other channel, for a balanced coverage of current events.

There are things I enjoy- but there's nothing I consider essential viewing.

The BBC's news coverage is abysmal
