World Television Day – 21 November

Did you know there is a World Television Day? To be truthful, I didn’t either. That was until I was surfing the internet and discovered that UNESCO has officially made the 21st of November, World Television Day.

I will admit I don’t think I can live without a television. Sure, there is the Internet and YouTube, and all kind of portable devices to watch videos from, but there is still nothing like watching a program on television.

When I was growing up, televisions were still huge, bulky and heavy. I can even remember owning a television without a remote control (this was when I was still very young of course, I am not that old).

Television was the first device to bring moving images directly to your home, completely changing the landscape of how people were entertained, enticed and engaged.
