We still cant wait to get home and watch whatever our favorite programme happens to be,as a kid I would run for almost two miles so I didn't miss scooby doo or blue peter
This could be a soap the news film or just about anything that takes your fancy,our lives very much revolve around around television.
If you are unfortunate enough to find yourself unemployed and having the delights of day time TV inflicted on you you will seen the adverts for saga and how to pay your funeral expenses all targeted at the elderly.
Now such ads are never on at peak viewing time for obvious reasons.
So the advertisers are critically aware of audiences and the time of audiences.Certain programmes attract particular types of audiences which needs no explanation.
Sometimes the rescheduling of a programme by as little as ten minutes can bring consternation and even letters of protest.
