TavistockEnders Scoops Soap Awards

The Inside Soap Magazine Awards this year have been dominated by that propaganda broadcast Eastenders. (Background: http://hpanwo.blogspot.com/2008/07/grimlys.html) Here’s the news podcast of the event: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7643437.stm . This is very worrying especially, as the reporters says, the awards are given by public ballot and that they’re all concerned with the criteria that the viewers talk about; not best director, designer etc, but best actor/actress, comic moment, entrance or exit etc. So the social violence being promoted in Eastenders is popular, and its targets are lapping it up like rat poison. I can’t understand those who shrug their shoulders and say “So what? It’s only a TV show. What harm can it do?”
