Work: as seen on TV

5th January 2001 at 00:00
An evening's TV viewing shows a multitude of people at work, with documentaries and news programmes offering less glamorous but more factual images than the triumphs and disasters of the soaps and docusoaps. Work: as seen on TV is an A4 ring-binder pack for secondary teachers containing 22 activities that use the familiarity of television to raise many challenging questions for students. Photocopiable work-sheets explore skills,comparing job opportunities now with those in the past, and discussing how far Coronation Street's pub, the Rover's Return (pictured), reflects reality.
