Daytime Television

As much as I am enjoying the delights of Homes under the Hammer, Escape to the Country/Sun/Winter Sun or wherever and the many, many antique shows I do wonder to whom the programme of delights is aimed.  The adverts are definitely geared to the elderly and/or infirm.  Given that most views would tend to be housebound for reasons of age, infirmity or unemployment why not use the schedule for some decent drama repeats, or…deep breath…documentaries.  Maybe I am mistaken but surely the majority of daytime viewers would not have the means or the motive to upsticks or take up property renovation or go browsing around market stalls…
