Is TV a source of inspiration or sedation?
The television, part of the household for over half a century, is often vilified in the press as the reason why children aren’t getting enough fresh air and a source of low culture that’s all about tuning in and switching off.
Survey results by First Utility, the nation’s largest independent gas and electricity supplier, tell a different story. 34% of the 2,000 people surveyed said that reality TV is inspiring them to try new things, such as cooking, baking, singing, ballroom dancing and ice skating.
What’s your view? Have TV shows like The Great British Bake Off encouraged you to be more creative in the kitchen and find new passions in life, or would life be enriched without TV?
