The mass media have done and continue doing much to excite an interest in every aspect of the country's life. Recent events are always reported in the newspapers, over the radio and television.
I think that radio and television are very important. There are many publishers in the world. The first newspaper appeared in Italy in the 16th century.
British people read more newspapers than any other people in the western world. There are nearly 5000 periodicals published in the UK. The newspapers are considered to be "independent". Only one national newspaper, The Morning Star, is the official mouthpiece of a political party. Fleet Street is often called the centre of the newspaper industry.
Various radio and television programmes are presented by the BBC. There are four separate radio channels and two television channels. Radio and television programmes are given in the BBC magazine, the Radio Times.
Different people like different kinds of mass media. As for my family, we like to read different newspapers and to watch TV programmes.
Some people say that television is doing a lot of harm and we spend so much time in front of a television screen instead of visiting friends. But nobody makes us doing that. I think that we get a great amount of information. Television helps us to relax after a hard day's work. To my mind, we must watch TV to be well-informed because it is the reflection of our society. For example, we can see people from our and other countries and learn of their customs, opinions, problems.
