"Why is British television left-wing? What is it about the small screen that makes innately socialist? Film manages to be politically neutral, or capitalist with libertarian leanings. And its not only the BBC, although it does seem to have a more pronounced Orwellian bias tan the commercial channels. One possible reason its that creativity is a left-leaning occupation. It’s about change and improvement. Conservatism mistrusts change and rarely thinks that improvement improves. Conservatives conserve."
