PART – 2 CUE CARD
Talk about Television, Its uses and Abuses
You should say:
– What do you watch in television
– Why people love to watch television
– How it affects our daily life
Television is one of the most popular sources of entertainment these days. It is better than the radio and transistor. It means looking at things which happen at distant places live. Television teaches and pleases. It has almost all different types of programmes. A television watcher forgets his worries of life. It is quite interesting to see things happening before our eyes. Television watchers feel very happy to see for e.g. a man landing on the moon and the space man talking from the space to people who are sitting on the planet (earth).
The programmes for families like sports, news and interviews with film actors are very interesting. We can see big world leaders on the television. It brings films to our houses. Television can be used for propaganda against social evils. Everything which has advantages also has disadvantages.
Similarly, there are many disadvantages of television. It can harm children’s eyes as they are always busy in watching the various cartoon channels or other entertainment programmes. They don’t care for their studies as they take more interest in watching television programmes. Sometimes, they sleep late at night and spoil their health. Sometimes television watchers even don’t care for the guests who occasionally visit us when they are watching some programmes. In this way, a sensitive guest is more likely to feel offended.
Moreover, most of the television programmes are shown late at night. Children wish to see programmes. They keep awake and thus spoil their health. Students also waste a lot of their time in watching television. No doubt, it is true that people of all ages watch television more often in the past. This is because it is not always possible for elders and housewives to go out to pursue hobbies or other activities. Then the only option left for them is watching television.
Moreover, working people are tired when they come back home and they feel watching television as they get some rest. On top of it, television these days shows programs to cater to the needs of all ages and classes of people.
PART – 3 FOLLOW UPS
What do you think has had the greater impact on the minds of people, cinema or TV?
Cinema was the most popular form of entertainment before the miracles of television. With the homecoming of television sets and nowadays, LCDs, and Plasmas, Home theatres etc., have become the part of almost every home. Television has left cinema behind and now with its distinctive coloured features and multiplicity of channels, its impact is getting more and more remarked.
Why is television considered as the basic necessity of life?
Television, the modern magic picture box, is one of the chief miracles of science. It delights the viewers. Its programmes include children film shows, feature films, news, speeches, debates, etc. A television viewer sits riveted to his set for hours as the beautiful sequence of entertaining programmes passes before his/her eyes. Today one can tour the whole world and one feels he/she is a part of the entire universe through the television programmes. It broadens a man’s outlook and makes him/her an enlightened citizen of the world.
