Emily Watson Television

Emily Watson TelevisionEmily Watson Television, Although a great many folk will have been watching re-runs of her old films over Christmas, Emily Watson, the War Horse star, says she has no intention of letting her own children, Juliet, six, and Dylan, two, become couch potatoes.

The 44-year-old actress, left, points to research that shows too much screen time for children – be it television or a computer – endangers their ability to develop empathy with real people.

“Credit to my own parents for bringing me up without a television,” the 44-year-old actress says, empathetically.

One wonders if Kevin Bakhurst, a BBC executive, knows more about the mood in the corporation’s newsroom than Peter Sissons, a popular anchorman of many years’ standing, albeit one who has lately retired.
Bakhurst, who edited the BBC One bulletins on Boxing Day, says on Twitter that he did not pick up on the sense of “fear” that Sissons’s “spies” told him the prospect of the Duke of Edinburgh’s death had engendered in the corporation’s hard-pressed reporters. Sissons told me BBC journalists had long taken the view “please God, not on my shift” when it came to reporting the death of a member of the Royal family as the “tone” is so hard to get right.

Sissons knows what he is talking about. In 2002, when he announced the death of Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, he was lambasted for wearing a burgundy tie, as opposed to a black one.

Bakhurst, meanwhile, spends so much of his time sharing his thoughts with his followers on Twitter that one questions whether if he would have the time to notice much at all.
