Uses and Gratification Theory - Peaky Blinders

How is Uses and Gratification Theory used throughout Peaky Blinders?

Peaky Blinders is a crime drama showed on BBC Two at 9pm. The programme is set in 1919 Birmingham, which follows former world war one soldiers who have returned home and formed a criminal gang. Throughout Peaky Blinders, Uses and Gratification theory is justified through clear links with technical conventions, conventions and sequences from the narrative, an example of this through entertainment purposes: filling time. The target audience will use Peaky Blinders to fill their time passively through the score/non-digetic sounds to guide them through the character's feelings, reactions and dialogue.
