In 1996, November 21 was marked as World Television Day by the United Nations General Assembly and in the same year, the first World Television Forum was also held.

Television these days have become a part of our lives as it provides us with entertainment, news, politics and many more things which are related to providing education but the crucial role it plays is in delivering information.
