I think this is marvellous and wonderful and I could cry (but I will not ‘coz this is “television” and we are British)

Buy it.

Speaking of crying on “Wireless Tele Vision”, d you all think as I do, that the current fashion for presuading people such as the parents of pretty young girls (who have just been lost in air crashes or (worse) murdered) to cry volubly on Wireless Tele Vision, for all to see, is a form of pornography?

I think it is. The loss of the life of a human being is a private tragedy, which belongs to his/her parents and relations. We should not be forcibly forced to take part (such as the [dead-electron] “News Media” make us to do), unless invited freely, and inidividually, but the bereaved, to do so. This process is not unilaterally given, on moral grounds, to “Wireless Tele Vision” to do for the bereaved. 


One comment

  1. It seems a common hypocrisy of TV to do this sort of thing. Last week I found myself half watching in the background one of these Channel Four “documentaries” called “The World’s Hairiest Man and Me” – I believe there have been others about the tallest woman and the shortest person and so on. Anyway, part the way through the journalist/presenter reflected that the mother of one of the hairy kids taking him to show around at circuses and private parties as a curiosity or freak was as distasteful as nineteenth century freak shows. Not for once did he appreciate the irony that his program was doing exactly that but on a mass scale to British viewers thousands of miles away from the family!
