Entertainment evolves and can be adapted to any scale: from an individual enjoying pre-recorded media products for personal amusement, to a banquet adapted for two, or to performances intended for thousands or even a global audience. While technological change has altered the availability, cost, variety and speed of entertainment products, some forms remain recognisable – for example, stories, music, dance, games and theatre. These are forms that tap into the psychological, social and emotional needs of human beings.
