Media influence
"In psychology, communication theory and sociology, media influence
or media effects refers to the theories about the ways the mass media
affect how their audiences think and behave.
..
Critics of the media effects theory point out that many copycat murders,
suicides and other violent acts nearly always happen in abnormal
upbringings. They were raised in a violent, emotionally neglected or
aggressive environment which influenced their behavior more rather than watching certain programs, films or listening to certain music. Most people
who carry out these acts are also mentally unstable to begin with.
Critics also point out that just because an audience sees acts of violence
on TV, etc, this does not mean they will actually do it themselves.
Of the millions of people who watch violent films, only a small number
have carried out acts of violence as a direct result..."

How to ask for the time
"We're all, it seems, obsessed by time.
It’s part of our everyday lives.
If we know the time it can stop us from being late and missing important moments.
We can check the time on watches, clocks and even our phones.
But what if you don’t have any of these?
What if, for example, you are at a bus stop and you need to know what time it is now? How should you ask a complete stranger? Find out in this programme."

You Make It Real sung by James Morrison
- WITH the lyrics on the right

"When my head is strong, but my heart is weak
I'm full of arrogance, and uncertainty
When I can't find the words, you teach my heart to speak
You make it real for me...
Oh, and everybody's talking, in words I don't understand
You've got to be the only one, who knows just who I am"
