Ricky Myatt Media Report Brief and Research The aims of our production was to meet the brief given to us, which was to produce a five minute radio programme, which would be of a documentary nature about any chosen current issue or topic. The format had to include a theme tune, vox pops, formal interview and links, in order to keep the radio programme continuous. It was also important that we included our own ideas, opinions and views, as well as those of others. Therefore, within our group it was decided that the target audience for our programme would be sixteen to eighteen year olds of both gender. This audience was chosen because: * Interviews and questionnaires could be completed in College * Target audience is of similar age range as our group and we felt we would relate better to their needs As a group it was jointly decided that we all needed to gain more knowledge in the field of radio in order to conduct research on radio. As part of my research I decided to spend time listening to radio documentaries, which included news reports on 'Radio 1' and the 'Breakfast Show, Radio 1', which targets a younger audience generally, which was vital to our project. ...read more.


Jamie and myself then used our pre made scripts to perform the introduction. . This was achieved by using a microphone and DAT recorder on a stand to achieve a better sound quality. It was decided that we would speak in a lively manner, as our questionnaire revealed that our target audience preferred this style of radio Next followed a link from the end of the introduction to the beginning of the vox pops. From the six vox pops obtained we selected the three most suitable for our programme. The vox pops required editing to meet the programme time schedule, a total time allocation of sixty seconds. Rough editing reduced the length of each vox pop but fine editing was required to achieve a fluent sound. This was done on the Wave lab programme. The group lost time with the rough editing, we didn't meet the deadline we wanted to, and the process was rushed. It was decided to run two vox pops back to back and leave the third until later in the programme to avoid repetition and disinterest to the listener. There were many benefits of the use of digital technology, it allowed the group to select what information was relevant, and we could delete irrelevant information from the production without having to re-record the interview. ...read more.
