I strongly believe that movies and television have a great influence in people's behaviour. It is an undeniable fact that most people in the world have access to either a televison or a cinema theatre and do make use of them at a regular basis.Some of the ways in which such media can affect people are stated below.

Firstly, The main group of people who are attracted to the television and movies are the the teenagers.This is the group that is most susceptible to change.They often try to emulate what they see on screen and in order to be a hero themselves.It is not uncommon to see young people try to mimic the stunts and heroic deeds performed by their idols or role-models on screens.Sometimes, this will have a deleterious effect as young people try to display some violent and aggressive behaviour that they visualize in the screen.

Secondly, Each country or region has its own culture and it is necessary to preserve them in order to exhibit cultural diversity to the future generations.There are a lot of programs and scenes that are being broadcasted in televisions and movies that might not confirm to the mindset of the local society.But sometimes young people get influenced by these scenes.They get a false impression that they too should live their life the way people live in foreign movies.They tend to change themseves according to what they see.This might destroy the native practces and customs which is highly undesired.

Lastly, Some of the programs that appear in movies and televisions contain a lot of adult content which is inappropriate for young children.Some of these programs are broadcasted without appropriate warnings.This might pose a threat to the children.They might get attracted to such inappropriate material thereby indulge themselves in wrong practices.

These are some of the ways in which people's behaviour can be afftected by mass media such as television and movies.So there is a need to look into this matter and to obtain a suitable solutions to such problems.

How do movies or television influence people’s behavior?

This is very serious question, whose answer often stays concealed. I think that the movies and the television have many methods to influence people’s behavior. This influence varys from positive to negative.
However, In major case many televisions prefer to show movies and programs which are interesting for the public, but often they are dangerous for it. For example movies which contain violence, sexual scences and drug using may influence people’s behavior in one negative way.

In the era of the market many people want to sell their products by all means. They are ready to trespass the basic moral principles for doing that.

I think that the governments must take the control on the televisions. It’ll protect children from dangerous programs.

Many modern contries are incorporate in their legislations different law restrictions about dangerous programs and movies. The films in this countries must be marked with red dot, whose aim is to warn parents that the movie is not appropriate for their children. I think that it’s the right solution and all countries must follow this experience.

Also, the films and the television have some positive effects. For instance, they are easy way to learn different languages. The films and the television have another positive effect - they improve general knowledge. I accept that the films are one kind of the art but I think that they may be dangerous kind of art.

In conclusion, I think that the effects of the movies and the television programs must be profoundly consider. It’ll decrease many social deviations like child aggression, drug using, smoking and drinking.

How do movies or television influence people’s behavior?

Nowadays, television has become the most popular type of communication and entertainment. Because of its popularity, television clearly has a far-reaching effect on human life, in particular, on people’s behavior.

On the one hand, television provides people with many undeniable advantages. With a TV, you can easily gain numerous knowledge in every areas. If you want to get some information about the current situation in Iraq, just turn on your TV and open CNN or BBC channels. You are a student ? You want to be well-prepared for the coming entrance exam to university ? Please pick up the remote control and switch to the educational channel.

Furthermore, through programs on TV, people can learn many practical skills to communicate with each other. The TV programs often simulate cases happening in all aspects of real life. Therefore, people can draw their own lessons from those cases. For example, from movies shown on TV, people could come to know how to behave in certain cases and then, apply into their real lives to solve their own issues. Also, TV brings about a huge source of entertainment, making people’s lives more pleasant. After a long working-day, tired from all stuff you’ve done, you only need to stay at home, lying on the sofa to enjoy interesting films of all kinds, from action films, horror films to romantic films and so on. This helps you feel at ease and escape from your tensions. In general, TV has clearly become an essential part in human modern life.

On the other hand, TV also brings with it serious problems. Watching TV could lead to a number of health issues. For instance, in developed countries where TV is popular, many children acquire obesity because of watching TV too much without exercises. As a consequence, it leads to laziness and health deterioration. In addition, not only could TV harm people physically but it could also impact on people mentally in many cases. More and more violent behaviors are shown on TV today. As a result, they become persist obsessions in people’s mental and gradually lead them to violence in real life. Especially, young people’s fledgling brains are vulnerable to these stimuli. Many young criminals are found to commit crimes due to the fact that they simply imitate what they have seen on the screen. In short, if ignored, TV impact would result in long-lasting and head-achy problems in society.

All in all, like a double-edged knife, TV brings about both advantages and disadvantages. What people need to do is to make use of its positive things and to restrain its negative ones as much as possible.

- "Television is the first truly democratic culture - the first culture available to everybody and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want !" ( Clive Barnes );
- "Television has a real problem. They have no page two !" ( Art Buchwald );
- "Television is not the truth. Television is a god-damned amusing park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a travelling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We're in the boredom killing business." ( Paddy Chayepsky );
- "Why should people pay good money to go out and see bad films when they can stay at home and see bad television for nothing ?" ( ( Sam Goldwyn );
- "Television has proved that people will look at anything rather than each other !" ( Ann Landers );

Introduction :
- nowadays television plays a very important part in our lives;
- that is why it is essential to decide whether television is a blessing or a curse;
- obviously, television has both advantages and disadvantages;

Development :
- here are some advantages ( and possible disadvantages ) I consider television might present :
A. Television - as a convenient and very cheap source of entertainment;
- it is more convenient and cheaper to sit comfortably at home [ with unlimited entertainment available ] than to go outside for amusements;
- we do not have to pay for expensive seats at the theatre, the opera, or the ballet, for a bad show;
- by turning the magic knob we can see plays, films, operas, shows, political discussions, or the latest exciting football match;
- however, those that perceive television as disadvantageous say :
1). that the television viewer does nothing but simply watch it;
2). that the television viewer does not even use his legs when he watches it;
3). that the television viewer does not take any initiative;
4). that the television viewer does not make any choice;
5). that the television viewer does not exercise any judgement;
6). that the television viewer is completely passive;
7). that the television viewer has everything presented to them without any effort on their part;

B. Television - as one of the most important mass-media to keep people informed about current events:
- television allows us to to follow the latest developments in science and politics;
- television offers us a great variety of programs which are very instructive and stimulating [ the talk show, the game show, the comedy show, the cartoon show, the quiz show, the documentary, the sport show, the game show, the news, the TV serial ];
- it could be argued that the radio also performs this service;
- but on TV everything is much more lively, everything is much more real, and this just because the visual image has a more powerful impact on people' lives than the auditory image;

C. The television screen - as having a terrible effect on us.
- we get so used to looking at the television screen movements, that the television screen comes to dominate our lives almost entirely;
- people often criticize the quality of TV programs;
- but TV is a good comfort to many elderly people;
- we also know that television instructs children, as well as adults;

Conclusion :
- in conclusion, I think television in itself is neither good nor bad;
- the value of television to society is determined by the uses to which it is put;
- the value of television to me as an individual belonging to this society is determined by "what I do want to watch on TV" ( to quote Clive Barnes, the very famous American novel and screenplay writer )

Television is, nowadays, one of the most popular forms of entertainment. Consequently, it influences us and our behaviour significantly.
For many people, the main idea of watching TV is to obtain information about what is happening in the world. Due to television, people know about the political and economic situation of their own and other countries. We keep in touch with all places on the globe thanks to the information which is available on TV. We can also be sure that we will be the first to know about some changes or important events. We learn about a special occasion, like a new exhibiton or concert, only from TV.
I strongly believe that movies and television have a great influence in people's behaviour. Firstly, the main group of people who are attracted to the television and movies are the teenagers.This is the group that is most susceptible to change.They often try to emulate what they see on screen and in order to be a hero themselves.It is not uncommon to see young people try to mimic the stunts and heroic deeds performed by their idols or role-models on screens.Sometimes, this will have a bad effect as young people try to display some violent and aggressive behaviour that they visualize in the screen.They get a false impression that they should live their life the way people live in foreign movies.They tend to change themseves according to what they see.

Lastly, some of the programs that appear in movies and televisions contain a lot of adult content which is inappropriate for young children.For example movies which contain violence,child agression, sexual scences, drug using, smoking and drinking may influence people’s behavior in one negative way.Some of these programs are broadcasted without appropriate warnings.This might be a threat to the children.They might get attracted to such inappropriate material. These programs must be marked with red dot, whose aim is to warn parents that the movie is not appropriate for their children.

These are some of the ways in which people's behaviour can be afftected by mass media such as television and movies.So there is a need to look into this matter and to obtain a suitable solutions to such problems.However, I believe that television and movies also influence our behavior in positive ways. How they affect you depends on how much you watch, what you watch, and how you respond to what you watch.
