Default Help with a survey

Hi,

For part of my university degree, I need to gather some information, and have produced an survey, and I was hoping that you could help.

It's about what type of program you watch.

It can be found here.

Thanks in advance

Michael

My gut reaction is to ask if you're familiar at all with 'The Young Ones'...

Me to! It was interesting, though I had my doubts on some of the questions, as I don't know the types of most of the series, or their names in English.
You forgot to put SF in the TV Program type question. And you call yourself a SF fan. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

I'm not the one who came up with the questions, I'm just the person "assigned" with gathering the data. But if I had come up with the questions I would have put SF. Well that's my story and I'm sticking with it

Done. Though you might tell the people who set the questions that if they paid rather more attention to their English, they might get a better response. I could barely translate some of the questions. Sorry, but it's true.

ditto

I suspect that it was compiled by a group of heavy watchers. They really needed to get it beta tested by a non-watcher or two. If I was the assessor I'd mark'm down for this!

I did your survey, but couldn't answer the last question since I've only watched one of those shows and that was only about 15 minutes of Desperate House wifes.

And I don't know the difference between a soap and a sitcom.

Hope you get what you need out of the survey.

Same here. Doctor Who's the only one I've watched, and never regularly. Oh yeah, and EastEnders as a teen in 1985...

Hi,

Thanks everyone, I agree that the wording could have been better on some of the questions.. but I guess that'll be a lesson to learn for next time, aside from the one about, having done this survey about 6 weeks ago, when we were supposed to have it done...

whoops...

Had to do what Cheryl did and leave the last question blank. Don't know what most of the answers pertained to as per how a show is presented, as i watch so little TV. Mostly I rent or download the shows I want to see and then watch them, thus I know very little about what's actually on TV anymore.
