      It might have something to do with the 'low genetic diversity' of the parents; sorry, of the mother and her partner.

            I think that is so. I wasn't sure about that.

                Frankly I don't consider any television to be a necessity. I would far rather listen to the wireless. Other than Chris Evens I find radio broadcasting to be considerably more intelligent.

                  I don’t think your average younger ‘person’ has the concentration to listen to a radio for more than a few minutes at a time.

                    On a separate but related subject, browsing the newspapers in the Co-op this morning (I didn't buy any of them) I see the Torygraph leads with "Ex-Criminal magistrates would boost diversity" reporting the comments of John Bache, Chairman of the Magistrates Association.

                    Meanwhile the Wail is asking "what does it take to get locked up", criticising "appalling soft justice meted out by courts".

                    (I can answer that question: speeding! Just one instance of driving at 120 MPH + on a deserted motorway is far more likely to result in a jail term than burglary or violent offending.)

                    Elsewhere there are stories of black and dark skinned people using dangerous skin lighting products, whilst at the same time some white people feel the need to use fake tans and dangerous sun beds.

                    We really have lost the plot.

                      But why is that?

                      I don't disagree with you but why is it that 'younger people' lack the attention span needed to listen to a radio programme? We used to be glued to the wireless for hours!

                        Yes, I think Johns right, low attention span due to social media distractions etc. I find it difficult to put down my iPad most evenings and find myself doing exactly what was mentioned, dipping in and out of TV while distracted by things like this forum!

                                Most evenings of the week I find nothing worth watching on TV (terrestrial/freeview). I would have agreed with you about the radio but it has gone downhill recently and there is a current debate about why Radio 4 "Today" is losing listeners. It's quite simple, interviewers are deeply in love with the sound of their own voice and drown out what interviewees are trying to say. Most of the Radio 4 comedy is now dire, unfunny and infantile.
