FOWC with Fandango: Television

Even cats like to watch their favourite programmes, which usually deals with bird life. At least our Nera was a keen bird fan.

Otherwise television is good to have, but if I do not have it I can still survive.

I began with the BBC, the british television. It was black and white and a very small screen, but that was how it all begun. With time the television sets got bigger, wider, and we had another TV programme, so there were two.

And then I moved to Switzerland. It was just at the time when colour television was beginning. For my first two years I had no television, but then I met Mr. Swiss, we got married had a home and of course a television. So now it was Swiss television, three stations for the three languages. One in German, one in Italian and one in french. The German programme was basically soijen so-called high German, but a lot of programmes were being broadcast in Swiss German. I suppose that was the reason why I learned this strange language.

And then we got satellite TV and were receiving programmes from all over mainland Europe.

Today we have a television with at lease 100 channels from many countries to choose from. I was mainly watching the German speaking TV leaving the choice up to Mr. Swiss as I had other hobbies than watching a square box every evening.

However with the years, age changes things. Now Mr. Swiss no longer bothers with his Swiss programmes and gradually the British TV has moved in. I have 5 channels to choose from and have gradually got back to the British way of life. I even understand British politics again.

Television is not so bad really, you just have to choose the right programmes.

  1. I sometimes feel if I could rewind and go to life that was unplugged. Just few friendly conversations a day, rumours across the town the only news we would need and just less drama altogether. Also, I want to have a cat now.

    This was a really sweet read. Thanks 🙂
