  2. radio station analysis

    BBC Radio One. 97-99FM The target audience of Radio One is 18-24 year olds. This is very apparent in all the shows on the station. Radio One also has a strong student following which is especially recognisable in the afternoons on Scott Mills show. He has a very interactive audience with phone ins and competitions geared towards that sort of person. He will often discuss evenings with the listener where he has performed at their university or college. I think there are exceptions to their target audience in the morning during Chris Moyles' and Jo whiley's shows.

  4. For this piece of coursework I have decided to make an investigation into language used in football commentaries.

    Methodology I have noticed that due to the duration of a full football match, analysing a commentary from a whole match would give me more data than I need to carry out this investigation. Therefore to focus my project further, I have decided to use extracts of the commentaries. These will focus on important moments and incidents during the duration of the match. Using my existing knowledge of listening to commentaries, I have pin-pointed one period of a game which would be useful to analyse.

  5. Taking the BBC and at least one other foreign public broadcaster as your focus, discuss the challenges faced by public service broadcasters in the global multi-channel market.

    Also, the privately owned, commercial sector, with its flagship BSkyB, has arguably provided greater choice in broadcasting albeit through subscription, and has diversified into niche areas that were either previously neglected on terrestrial television or were the subject of limited coverage. This catering for micro-level interests (and indeed the whole range of subjects covered by satellite broadcasters) has meant a significant reduction in terrestrial television viewing. It has also, in a wider sense, given rise to a series of arguments concerning public service broadcasting on the whole, and its reliance on the license fee (particularly the BBC)

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • To what extent was the political independence of the BBC threatened by the Conservative governments of the 1980's?

    "In conclusion while the BBC certainly had its political independence threatened by governments of the 1980's, this suppression rarely lasted long, caused out cry and was resurgent. The latter alone means one could say the BBC's political independence was not truly threatened because people at the core of the BBC such as Milne continued to affront this suppression. However, symbolic of the fall of this opposition was the true loss to the independence of the organization the loss of Milne in 1987, 'the last true director general of the BBC', then board members and the new director general gained more confidence in their actions at the very end of the 1980's. This is Marxist as the dominant conservative ideology, traditionally held by elites as well, influenced working class people through the new conservative BBC eventually."

  • To what extent was the BBC in the 1920s the personal creation of John Reith?

    "In conclusion, it is apparent that a variety of factors shaped the early development of the BBC in the 1920s. Although Reith was very influential on the BBC, namely through shaping its course of programming and its function according to his own values, and through guiding it through a major crisis, to enhance its status and credibility, the BBC cannot be seen as his personal creation. This is because there were a number of social and political factors which also shaped the BBC, and in some cases, combined with Reith's ideas to help them work, or provided Reith with the opportunity to exploit them to aid the corporation's development."
