CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the study

This study is on Impacts Of Channel O Musical Television Programmes On The Cultural Behavioural Of Federal Polytechnic Students Idah. The term culture has been defined differently by different people. The different definitions attached to culture are based on the differences in the orientation of the people.

According to Ekeh 1989, culture is construct used in an attempt to analyze and integrate events and ideas in broad spectrum of areas of society. Jekayinka 2002, states that from wider perspective, culture includes the total repertoire of human action which are socially transmitted from generation to generation. Obiora 2002, says the transformation of culture is gradual and not sudden. He contends that culture is a continuous process of change. It changes exactly the same way as the human being change. It is dynamic, learned, acquired, transmitted or diffused through contact or means of communication flow from generation to another. The Nigerian culture is observed to be fading out as a result of the acceptance and adaptation of the modernists solution on to underdevelopment. One of such theories which relates to this subtle method of assault international communication is given by Lerner 1956.

In his concept of empathy, Lerner states that the inhabitants of third world nations must learn to empathize with the West for modern transformation of their societies to be possible. Schramm 1964, on the other hand, developed an interesting model in which he equates the level of social development of communication to various nations. Access to these modern mass media Radio, Television, films, telephone, and newspapers is linked to individual modernity. Nigeria and other third world countries have reacted to these finding by inventing a substantial amount of their foreign exchange earnings to import radio and television transmitters and sets. The television programmes especially provide many powerful models for children and abundant opportunities for observational learning.
