As far as TV goes, a reduction in consumerism
means I'd bet on a boom in gardening, cooking and DIY programmes.
They're cheap to make and they involve people doing stuff at home
instead of going out to buy things.
Watching theseTV property shows that seem to be on every channel
these days of people going to Sunny climes and buying huge houses,
loads of and, pools, etc for about tuppence made me wonder... I
wonder if there are TV programmes in the US, Spain, Greece, Oz, etc
where those fed up with sunshine, cheap house prices, etc, dream of
coming to wet, grey UK and buying a ridiculously over-priced house!??
