This week’s posting is an unapologetic affirmation of the healing power of the telly. Interesting isn’t it that our new TV behaviour is called ‘binge - watching’, language that still carries an assumption that TV watching is addictive, harmful and out of control? I get irritated with the chat that says that too much telly, or too much of the wrong kind of telly is bad for us. I object to the classed (at least in the UK) and moral high ‘horsery’ of those who believe that we would be better served by ‘reading a good book’ or ‘going for a walk’. Well who says? I’m not onto something new here. The idea that film and TV can be therapeutic is supported by a lot of theory and a lot of evidence.
