I realise Australia is quite a diverse country because of the Immigration from throughout the world. I just notice that every ad on British (virtually every one) has a racially mixed family when a family is shown, however, my experience of blending of races is pretty much the same as on Clarkson's farm, where he says Amazon want this show to be diverse, and he pans the camera round the farm sale and says " there is every type of 60 year old white man here". From this respect, I feel that adverts do not represent the society I notice around me.I was talking about the ads on ITV
i hate to dispel the myth, but the UK probably has a higher % of "rural" people than we do.
we are apparently one of the most urbanised countries in the western world, with something like 90 % of our population living in that thin coastal strip about 100km wide along our east coast, between Melbourne & Brisbane. We have a higher urban % of our population than Japan . . .
