Toys Story

Posted by lostincci on January 4, 2011

CMCI’s Dr Richard Howells made two television appearances over the festive period. He turned up as an expert cultural sociologist on two programmes about toys, both presented by James May. In the first he talked about soldier dolls including Action Man, while in the second he opined on the differences between toys marketed to girls and opposed to boys. Both programmes were transmitted on BBC2. Howells admits that he didn’t actually watch either of them -both were recorded and broadcast previously, but keep coming round as Christmas and New Year staples -a bit like The Sound of Music but without the songs.
