The TV Guide - - MR TELLY -

I do not wish to know what ‘Frus­trated’ of Rolle­ston Prison (TVG, Jul 15-21) is in for, but I am an­gry that he or she is com­plain­ing about the choices of movies and pro­grammes on TV, and that they have only limited ac­cess to chan­nels. They should be grate­ful they are even able to watch tele­vi­sion while in prison. Had you not com­mit­ted a crime to put your­self in prison, you could have been free at home to watch any pro­gramme that you wanted to. It may be true, as you say, that the pro­gram­mers may not be do­ing a good job, but who cares about your opin­ion when a lot of vic­tims of crime do not en­joy watch­ing crime pro­grammes be­cause of dev­as­tat­ing mem­o­ries.
