Does anyone else find background music spoiling their enjoyment of watching programmes on TV? It's sometimes impossible to follow what's being said, and it's so unnecessary in most cases. In particular I'd rather listen to the sounds of nature in nature programmes than most of the music they put on. Last night I couldn't follow a programme at all and turned it off in frustration.
What annoys me is the volume of music. The correct way is to have background music at a low level and the speech at a higher level. We can hear the music! We don't need it blasted at twice the volume of the speech. There have been so many dramas where the speech (especially whispering) is so low I have to turn the volume up, only to have the next scene blasting out music at a deafening level.
