Television, irresepective of whats being shown, can capture anyones attention. Even a kids program can capture the attentention of an adult.
Now and again over the past couple of years, Ive observed the poor quality of a kids show called YO TV. I feel that the behavior of the young people who host the show are not well directed by the SABC. The have the body language like rappers and poor choice of words.
What adds to it is the wild obsesion of the directors graphics and camera movements and vibrations. At times its an absolute caos especially with the badly behaved kids in the background.
Why cant they keep up with standards Mnet, eTV and even BBCs kids shows. They dont try to shake up the young minds and yet their shows are not boring.
We recently heard of the terrible behavior of kids in SA schools...... and theyre not getting any better. Im not saying that we should blame YO TV or SABC. Kids learn a lot of educational stuff from the show ......but with it, bad behavior. If you watch it once you will understand.
