    I think I may ask Tes_Rosaline to delete this thread. It's just too awful.

    My 11 year old grandsons make their own animated films using Lego people and iPad tricks and put them on Youtube. They assure me their friends all do it too. (Mum keeps an eye on all their output obviously.)

    Every day and AWW! CUTE PUSSYCATS!!! are tied in the lead of the poll.
    I had thought it might be a generational thing but maybe not!

    I watch quite often. What I especially like to do on a wet afternoon is settle down and watch an opera I haven't seen, or watch interviews with people like Janet Baker or Richard Bonynge and Joan Sutherland. I am also working my way through old Desert Island Discs. The Personal forum is, I find, very useful for introductions to new 'works of interest'

    I use it for music sometimes but like a radio not a TV in that I never watch the screen.
    (Anyone got any cello recommendations, btw?)

    Yes, mainly to listen to music, watch interesting things about places, eg our town crier has posted an interesting video, the Tiwn council posts recordings of meetings on YouTube, I can also find useful EFL videos.

    Great choice @aspensquiver_2 but I'm surprised he took his cello out into the snow! :eek:

    I use you tube to explore my world through the eyes of others
    to go with folks on journeys

    to travel dangerous roads

    to explore land and marvel art the creativeness of editors

    to learn about an interest such as landscape photography

    to learn a skill such as sewing

    to watch music of al sorts
    children singing Fiji national anthem at school start.
    ps some of you might recognise an old sunday school song in there

    I find the knitting and sewing tutorials very useful.

    Youtube is great for documentaries, talks and lectures. I use it most days for these reasons. It also hosts a vast amount of obscure/ rare content, such as Alan Watts' fascinating tv lecture series on Eastern philosophy:
