Just reward for services to TV

I read with interest Torin Douglas’ column (“How SkyDigital shaped viewing habits at with the push of a button” MW October 7).

Now I know as BBC News’ media correspondent Torin has to keep his finger on the pulse of current affairs but after a quick calculation I have worked out that his household’s viewing repertoire comprises close to 30 channels.

How do they manage to cram that many TV stations in during the average day?

And when do they have time to do the normal things in life – like eat, sleep and drink?

I’ve heard of people taking their work home with them, but surely Torin deserves a major award for services to broadcasting for sitting through all that dross…
