Television (colloquially known as “TV” or the “telly”) is nowadays so popular that it is hard to believe that the first pictures were transmitted about fifty years ago. The BBC was the first company in the world to provide a public television service, which began in 1936. Viewers are now able to watch television for many hours a day, if they have time and wish. Moreover, viewers now have four channels at their disposal. In 1955 the Independent Broadcasting Authority opened a television service and in 1982 a second independent service came into operation. The BBC provides two channels. Advertisers buy time for advertising on Independent Television, but advertising time is short; it is limited by the special Act that allowed commercial television. Viewers of any of the programmes can watch plays, reports about different events, sports, news, interviews with famous people, musical performances and many other things. Films are often televised and many of them are made specially for television. The cinema industry is jealous of television, and keeps new films for showing in cinemas.

a) When they were youngsters, the Wright brothers received a flying toy as a gift from their father. Orville and Wilbur spent hours flying the toy back and forth across the room — until they broke it. Suddenly, the boys promised each other that someday they would fly in the air, just like their toy. Eventually, they began to develop the idea for the flying machine that would become the airplane. The brothers flew their plane three times that day. Each flight was slightly longer than the last. Wilbur had the longest — and final — flight of the afternoon. He flew 852 feet over 59 seconds. Though their flights may not seem like much today, they marked a historical moment. The Wright brothers had invented the airplane. Today, the National Air Traffic Controllers Association says, on average, there are between 25,000 to 30,000 passenger flights in America each day!

b) Everyone agrees that Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) was one of the greatest of all painters. His painting “The Last Supper” is probably the. most famous painting in the world. But Leonardo would be famous if he had never painted a stroke. For he was also a great inventor. He invented the wheelbarrow, the military tank, and roller bearings. He made plans for dozens of weapons and machines. He even experimented with airplane and submarine modes.

Besides, Leonardo was great as a scientist and engineer. He was also a poet, a musician, and a sculptor. Perhaps no other person in history has ever learned so much in a lifetime. Certainly no one ever deserved more to be called a genius.

c) The myth of Daedalus and Icarus is one of the most known and fascinating Greek Myths, as it consists of both historical and mythical details.
