Good morning fellow classmates, I am here today to talk about the importance of television in our lives. With the ever growing world of mass media becoming more accessible to us, we must realize the effect television has on the youth of today. This shows just how significant television is to us, but we can see that its importance is far greater than just being an object we own if we look at the variety of programmes and valuable content it offers and the purposes it serves in daily life.
Firstly, there are many different types of programmes on television that are useful for our daily life. The viewers can watch a weather report to prepare for the rest of the day. Cartoons and sport provide relaxation and fun for the kids. School programmes, documentaries and the news tell us about the world. And advertisements inform us about products that we should use. Secondly, the content is relevant because it is realistic and up to date.
As television is a medium that combines moving, colour images and sound, it resembles real life, so the viewers can identify with what they see. Moreover, modern technology means that the content is up to date, for example, news reports can be broadcast live and from all over the world. This ensures that information is available almost anywhere at any time. Finally, television can be used to enhance many important aspects of everyday life. People seek entertainments and distractions, and television can give us that in the form of films or cartoons.
People want education, information and instruction because they are curious and like to learn. Television gives us these in documentaries or educational programmes, in reports or cultural magazines. People enjoy creativity, and television gives us that in the work of all the people involved in creating clever film scripts, effective scenery, witty dialogues or magnificent camera shots. Television gives us the world, other cultures, other people, languages and ideas. It introduces us to a new kind of knowledge.
As we have seen, television offers us a wide range of valuable programmes and content and serves many purposes in our daily lives. Furthermore, television not only provides many types of programmes with interesting and broad content, but also serves to fulfill our needs in terms of entertainment and knowledge. It has become far more than just an object we own which can contribute positively to the education of society and to people’s awareness of others. Thank you for your kind attention
