  Books versus films: Proposer's points
Updated 13 March 2002, 15.25

The proposer reads out the motion:

"This house believes that books offer things films can't."

The proposer could use the points below when making their speech.

Spaces have been left for them to add points of their own:

  • Films cannot improve on books. The best special effects happen in your imagination.

  • Films limit the imagination by only allowing you the director's view of a story.

  • Films are shorter and so it's harder to be 'transported into another world'.

  • Films paint somebody else's pictures.

  • Everybody experiences a story in their own way through reading a book and can bring their own viewpoints to a discussion.

  • It has been said that 'reading is to the mind as exercise is to the body'.
