Letter: Town vs country

Sir: The solution to the suburban invasion of the countryside is more British television programmes depicting people living in attractive urban apartments, similar to American shows such as Friends, Seinfeld and Frasier, rather than the ubiquitous suburban semi.

As viewers rush to emulate the urban British lifestyles of their new favourite TV characters, we could expect a corresponding reduction in demand for housing in sprawling suburban estates.
