Introduction

1.1 Background to the Study

The television is an electronic aim mechanical device for audio and visual instruction, information, education, advertisement, public, radio, and massive outreach at ease and in leisure. It is a modern scientific technological improvement (over radio) on dissemination or transformation of information and commucnaiton of idea, ideals and goals. The television, like the radio, has its own scientific and technological history. It is a wonderful achievement of man’s developmental instinct that has helped in easing the burden of existence, albeit with its misuse. Kirpatrido (1983:1330) defines the television in terms of an electrical transmission of distant objects, events and occasions, to a wider audience.

No doubts the television is among the best scientific and technological advancement that have helped in making the universe a global village. It is at the beck and call of every “Dick and Harny” that is desirous to get informed, instructed and entertained in “the global culture or auto-socialization”. Like the radio, it could be listened to and viewed personally or collectively; it could be mobile. In this wise, the television holds the capacity of widening man’s horizon in handling his existential predicament as well as the possibility of eclipsing man’s dignity and morals. The televisioncapture the two main empirical sources of receiving information viz: the eye visual and the (audio). Thus, like the radio, the television could be very powerful in its influence.

Contextually, moral education involves character information. Spiritual elevation, and social or cultural approbation. Moral education aims at imparting good social habits and norms which are capable of fostering integral human and dignified existence. Moral education has a sits pre-condition the establishment of the sacredness and sanctity of life and existence.

The metaphysical dimension of moral education aims at the preservation, protection and refining of living and existence. The moral philosopher applies the prescriptive method in out-fining the “out to be” in existence. in this perspective also the moral philosopher is one of the gadflies or watchdogs of his age or society, high lighting those aspects of existence which he/she believes are with upholding and criticizing or attenuating those habits or cultures in existence which he/she believes do notaugur well with holistic existential preservation of up keep.

Moral education from conventional or scholar’s perspectives involved distinguishing wrong or bad actions from right or correct actions. By so doing the moralist or moral educator tries to influence the actions and behavior of the students/educands positively and objectively because it is hoped he/she should emphasize morally good actions. That is why moral education from etymological purview suggest trading out of bad norms, mores, and habits to better. Conducts, behavior and actions since morality I rooted to “mores education” implies reading one out of bad human habits conducts or behaviour in view of proper development.
