Why The Credits

I don’t need to see a list of everyone involved in the production of my shoes – the guy that shaped the last, skinned the leather, put the Sellotape on the end of the laces. I don’t need to know who prepped and cooked my resturant meal, or the team involved in the efficient running of my local supermarket.

So why do TV shows need to show me everyone involved in the making of their product? There’s a slight chance I might be interested in getting the actors’ names, but the hair and make-up? The cameraman? No need.

If they want to play some music before the next show starts, fine. Drop the self-indulgent name checks, please.
