informacinės pramogos

Example sentence(s):
  • Komercinių televizijų temos veikiau priklauso "informacinės pramogos" žanrui – jose atliekami įdomūs bandymai (pvz., ar iš tikrųjų "super" klijai gali išlaikyti batais prie lubų žemyn galva priklijuotą žmogų, ar brangesni akiniai nuo saulės geriau sulaiko saulės spindulius ir pan.), rodoma, kaip gaminami daiktai, tyrinėjamos neaiškios istorijos mįslės ir t.t. - LR Švietimo ir mokslo ministerija
