Today,many people find it hard to imagine what life was like prior to televisions.A vast amount of households have TVs in more than one room, so family members can watch different shows.This is quite startling as the television is actually quite a recent invention.  Regardless of whether you own an antique black and white CRT TV, or have a state of the art flat screen on TV Wall Brackets, it is worth remembering how past generations coped without them! Prior to the emergence of televisions people used to entertain themselves at home in many different ways.Many people purchased their first black and white TVs in the 1950s or 1960s,before this the radio was extremely popular.Families would gather in a room to hear their favourite radio shows and to listen to the latest news - this was particularly important to many during the Second World War.Listening to updates from London was a great reassurance to many.In past years,children used to spend a lot of time playing outdoors, or helping with household tasks.Its worthwhile remembering that as TV technologies advanced, so did many others,including those that make household chores easier.  Before washing machines, vacuum cleaners and dishwashers, house work was a very hard and time consuming activity.Microwaves and readymade meals mean that modern cooking can be very quick when necessary.  When not busy or catching up with news updates, sharing opinions, gossip and storytelling were ever popular.Children would sometimes create plays and make puppets and sets for amusement.Extended family and friends were often invited round for meals and to be entertained.This was often the highlight of the week in a house, and a huge amount of effort went into ensuring the house was spic and span,and the food was the best possible.Music has been part of human society for thousands of years,singing and dancing can help enhance bonds between people and express emotions that would otherwise have to be suppressed.Wealthy households frequently had pianos, and youngsters would have lessons so that they could impress visitors by playing beautiful or popular tunes.Quieter pass times were also encouraged,drawing and reading could occupy for hours, as could needlework or board games like chess.Another point worth considering is that young people often started work or left home a lot earlier in bygone years,and were busy maintaining households and families of their own.   Many believe that watching too much television has a negative impact on society and on health,and that the media has too much influence through the volume of broadcasts.But watching TV in moderation can be educational and can bring a smile to the faces of all generations.There is no doubt TV has a place in modern life when viewed responsibly, and large flat screens,some  on TV wall brackets are fast becoming the point which families gather around at the end of the day,to relax and discuss their day.
