Critics claim that the golden age of television occurred in the 1950's. Various fads have swept the television scene – e. g. westerns, doctor and lawyer shows, cops-and-robbers series, rural comedies. Sports coverage of baseball, golf and especially professional football is currently in vogue. Late evening talk shows are currently popular. Recently controversies involving television have concerned children's programming, the issue of violence, and the right of TV to broadcast controversial news programs. Psychologists have argued that the pre¬sentation of violence on television might lead young people to regard violence as acceptable behaviour. TV is a major factor in British life.
