English Media Course Work: The Richard Hammond Story The differences The Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph have taken towards the Richard Hammond Story. The Daily Mirror and Daily Telegraph both take different approaches towards the Richard Hammond story. For example, the story on the Mirror is positioned to the right hand side of the page to make room for the headline, whilst the Telegraph has placed it there to make room for other stories. The picture of Richards head on the Mirror has been cut out and placed over the text box which is informal, whilst on the Telegraph he is situated in a rectangular frame. Although this looks formal he is kneeling down with the camera looking up at him which portrays it as informal. Both papers do not want it to look like a serious picture of him, just an everyday one, because this is a sad story and you want to have a picture of him looking happy; not all serious. ...read more.


This informs us that he is happy at what he does. Richard with best friend and co-host of Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson is in a circular frame because it makes it stand out. It also makes them look such good friends that there like family, because people have circular frames in there homes which usually have pictures of family members in them.

His family are mentioned as loving in both papers, but mentioned earlier in the Mirror than in the Telegraph. His wife tells the Mirror 'He's the strongest man in the world and I know he'll get through this, he's a bit daft but I love him to bitts, where all going to be there with him''. She knows he takes a lot of risks but loves him and will support him. Uses and gratification appear in both papers. There is `social` gratification because we will take about the incident to other people. They `inform` us, telling us everything we need to know about what happened and we `identify` personally with the family, and maybe even Richard. One bit of emotive language the Mirror uses is ''Fighting for his life''. It sounds like he is struggling to stay alive. They also say he is a ''Mirror motoring columnist'', which means he is usually in the Mirror for motoring reasons and nothing like this. There is no emotive language in the Telegraph because they have taken a more serious approaches and say it how it is. ...read more.
