  • British TV HabitsIn 2010 British people watched, on average, 30 hours of TV a week.

    An average of 2.4 rooms with TV sets.

    We buy more flat screen TVs than our European neighbours: 43m sets were sold in Britain between 2004 and 2010, compared to 28m in Germany and 27m in France.

  • AdvertsThe first advert to be shown in the UK was an advert for S.R. Toothpaste on September 22, 1955 on the ITV network (its first day).

    ITV's 250,000 asking price for a 30-second slot during the 2010 series of Britain's Got Talent is currently the most expensive advertising slot on television.
