Re: Braocating TV for children
What PBS in the US and the BBC has done in the UK has been vital in the development of culture as we know it.    Let's hope for the sake of all it is sustained.

Re: Braocating TV for children
Isn't it a tragedy that we have to "market" education?   I was thinking about it as I was at the National College Fair for my son yesterday--and was witness to what I am coming to realize as the "College-Industrial Complex" which I hope to develop and write about for one of the #outsider properties....

Re: Braocating TV for children
@vnewman, that is a fascinating point!  But why not, they know how to market and we need to "market" education as well.

Re: Braocating TV for children
@DHagar.  I agree with you!  It was interesting to be reminded that using television as an educational tool for children is a relatively new concept.  And who knew the idea originally came from a beer commercial of all things!  Fascinating!

Re: Braocating TV for children
@vnewman, I saw that piece on Sunday morning.  It was good!  They are doing a good job and I believe truly understand some of the changes we are identifying.  Don't you?

I, like Ariella, did not watch Sesame Street either - I think the lines between education and entertainment (which Sesame Street began to  break down) were more distinct when I was growing up as well.

Re: Braocating TV for children
@vnewman, very true that young people today expect to be in control and have choices; those weren't options for the rest of us.  I think that will be a big driver going forward.

Re: Braocating TV for children
@vnewman for some reason, I never took to "Sesame Street." I did watch "Mr. Roger's Neighborhood" and some of the other PBS kids shows like the two I mentioned but not that one.

Re: Braocating TV for children
@Ariella - what did you think about Sesame Street?  

Did anyone here watch the Sunday Morning piece on the beginnings of the show?

Re: Braocating TV for children
Wow Adi - those are fascinating insights.  A "punishment" sounds so harsh but it makes sense when you frame it in the terms of the alternative being so much more attractive.  I hear the same sentiments from my 4 year-old who will say "I don't want to watch TV, I want a video."  Which to me, means he wants to be in control of what he's watching because of the touch screen.  So I guess not being in control is the punishment part (he can't work the remote!)

What you are saying about the Danes definitely rings true I think - the whole culture puts an emphasis on that cozy, warm feeling of hygge.  I could see where their TV programming reflects that.
