It’s interesting to know how people from different culture bond with similarly shared mass media. And it is also interesting to know that apparently, I watched a lot of TV back when I was little, heh.
Not my childhood (defeatdiabetes.org)
Anyway, compared to people from, let’s say, the United States, where mass media is equal to a worldwide phenomenon, it’s pretty common to see that your childhood!=other people from different countries’. This definitely happens when a lot of British friends talked about TV shows they watched and children show they’re fond of. Afraid not! As an Indonesian, I have experienced foreign culture during my childhood by…watching a lot of TV!
I don’t know whether you followed the series or not, TV Champion is a Japanese series of contest with various subjects for each week aired from 1992 until 1993, continued with its second series from 1993-2006, and 2006-2008. Aired not only in Japan, for example in Thailand and in Indonesia, it was a part of my Japanese series childhood memories alongside Ninja Warrior (Sasuke) and Takeshi’s Castle (I was not into Viking because I was quite older already back when it’s aired and we didn’t have Unbeatable Banzuke, there were still quite other TV shows though) . When I said various subjects, I mean various subjects, from the obvious origami, juggling, until things like perfect parking, Morning Musume (girl group) lover , and competitive eating. My favourites from episodes that I watched and remembered are the Lego ones, the stationery one, and the gift-wrapping one (when I said I like it, I mean it).

Nevertheless, I tweaked this a little bit.
Nowadays, business has been getting easier and easier, especially for us consumers who can buy everything with just one click then just wait for packed and delivered goods to come to our house. This way of trading, although easier, give the disadvantage of not knowing and seeing how real “traditional” trades were executed. Banking analyst Conor Woodman wonders about this too and set a challenge to go around the world in 6 months try to do “traditional” trades, with camera following his movements to be aired as documentary.
