World Television Day!

For those of us who grew up in the western countries, the television is almost taken for granted; it has always been there in the corner of the front room, entertaining us with bright colors and sounds, or satisfying our need to learn something new. Nowadays very few people watch television because many of them watch news, entertainment in phone itself. For the first time moving images could be projected from around the world into the homes of ordinary people bringing a new level of information and entertainment people dreamed of.

The first World Television Forum was staged by the United Nations in the mid ’90s, and it was out of this event that World Television Day was born. The forum brought together leading figures from the media industry to analyze the growing impact that TV had on decision-making and public opinion when it comes to issues of peace and security around the planet. Before to this people received information through radio broadcasting, if a household had transistor radio, and the newspapers. Early television broadcasts followed the same format as radio, with a man reading a simple bulletin on a black and white screen.

The delegation from Germany said, “Television is only one means of information medium to which a considerable majority of the world population has no access. That vast majority could easily look at World Television Day as a rich man’s day. They do not have access to television. There is more important information in the media and here I would mention radio in particular.”
