Time, Space and Television
Television creates repetitive habits. In its repetitions television can engender a sense of security, in ourselves and our environment. Using life-story interviews, Brennan argues here that the new habits created by television became part of a re-organisation of time and space in the home. Brennan demonstrates how television reshaped family habits, and became part of the re-organisation of domestic space. In its ability to let people survey the world from the privacy of their living room television also contributed to a re-organisation of public space. Brennan argues that by turning the home into the space where public events were experienced the new medium was a central aspect of the experience of modernisation.
