I personally believe that television is a very influential form of media because it is a standard gateway of knowledge and information for the masses. It allows for the preservation of cultural diversity both at a local and a global level and provides for the introduction of other customs and languages. The best example that television removes boundaries is the fact that when I was on a delegation to Turkmenistan, people in the market from Ashkhabad recognised my language because their favourite TV channel was a Polish music channel. Television is a great source, not only of entertainment but also of education. I strongly believe that it is a great tool to promote standards of behaviour and democracy, which is very important from the point of view of the European Union activities.
