How the Media Works

Last Friday Guido asked his readers what they thought of Channel Four’s 10 O’Clock Live from the previous night. The reviews hadn’t been too kind and over 3,000 of you voted:

    Former Play School presenter Floella Benjamin has urged ministers and broadcasters to “wake up” to a “crisis” in children’s programming.

    The Liberal Democrat peer warned against too much “passive viewing”, arguing that TV shows should not become a form of “surrogate parenting”.

    Baroness Benjamin told the House of Lords that the BBC’s Play School had added to children’s well-being.

    The pre-school programme ran from 1964 to 1982.

    Lady Benjamin said Play School, also presented by Brian Cant and Johnny Ball among others and featuring characters such as Humpty and Big Ted, had engaged children’s attention.

    Too many modern offerings encouraged “passive viewing and are used as surrogate parents or baby-sitters”.
