ABSTRACT
The article says that the British political parties are still strangely shy of using television to expound their views in the election campaign. It was announced recently that the parties will be on the television screen for a total of only two and a quarter hours throughout the campaigning period. During the campaign all other programs, which have a bearing on the elections, will be taken off the air. It will be noticed that there is to be no political broadcasting at all after May 21, though polling does not take place until May 26. Nobody should blame the BBC World Service for this. The corporation simply acts as a technical instrument for the parties in the elections.
