British TV soaps and general TV programmes... watch

    • Thread Starter

    British TV shows often seems to revolve around people from Council Estates, thuggish scum-bags, or the police dealing with thuggish scum-bags. Across a wide spectrum of various genres, such as drama, comedy, etc, Working Class people seem to be the people of choice to be represented - either in a negative light or a positive light. On the other hand, American TV seems to primarily focus on Middle Class people and their lives.

    Has anyone else noticed that British TV seems obsessed with Working Class people and police dealing with them? Also, I'm not saying Working Class people are criminals at all, just that's the representation.


    Perhaps because they are mainly watched by working class people?

    I have no evidence of this, just a thought.
Were you ever put in isolation at school?
