For people who don’t go out, not surprisingly, television is more popular than radio. 82 percent say that they watch television for more than ten hours a week – mainly for films and news programmes – but only 23 percent listen to the radio.
Music is always a favourite topic, but it seems that many people listen to music than can play a music instrument. The survey reveals that 38 percent watch live music, but 30 percent of people between 13 and 19 can play a musical instrument.
Only 32 percent of young adults play sports; with football, swimming, and cycling the most popular activities. But that means that more than two-thirds don’t play any sport!
