The chair looks formal and impressive, which shows power and wealth. This implies that the chair is an important part of the film, as if it is a symbol. * Shots 7 to 13 is a flashback of Vito's early life from 1900 and begins by showing a funeral taking place in Sicily. The extreme long shot shows us this is taken place on a extremely rough/dry setting. This scenery suggests what life is like Sicily; it is rough and uncomfortable and this implies poverty. The camera zooms into a long shot, of a band, choir boys, a coffin, woman and a boy.

"In 1985, the American Psychological Association (APA) held that television can cause viewers to act aggressively. More recently, in its overall review of television and behaviour, the APA Task Force on Television and Society reaffirmed this view and asserted that media violence can contribute to two other outcomes, desensitising viewers to violent actions and fear of being the victim of violence. However, these studies alone are not sufficient evidence that media violence causes aggression. According to Grossberg (1998:301) 'it might be that people inclined to act violently are more likely to watch television violence, and so it is their predisposition toward violence that leads to viewing violent TV, and not the other way around'. In my opinion, APA took a wrong approach in its study, because they took the media as its starting point to explain the general problem of violence in society (which has many other"
"In conclusion, it is clear that media does highly contribute in constructing a persons identity, as media plays such a vast part in everyone's life that instead of media
reflecting society 'we now have a situation where society is reflecting......the imaginations of some in the media industry.' ((C,Beyer, 2002. pg19). This quote alone
emphasises how powerful media has become in constructing one's identity."
"After reading through both 'The Guardian' newspaper article, and the 'Panorama' television documentary, I have come to the conclusion that the television documentary is much more effective. It included a much wider range of information, and showed coverage of the case right from when Shipman allegedly started killing off his patients. The information that it presents is presented in a very informative and effective way. It uses reconstructions of how Shipman is thought to have murdered his victims. There are also interviews with the family members of the deceased, and with friends and colleagues of Shipman. The voiceover in the program provides all the important information; he provides all the information in the newspaper article and more. I think what let the article down, is that it concentrated mainly on the final trial of Shipman. It didn't include much useful information about the murders. Even if the article was written by writers for 'The Sun' and was featured in that paper though, I still think that the television show would have been more effective. Television appeals to a huge audience of people, it's a part of people's lives. Newspapers such as 'The Guardian' are becoming a thing of the past, and are being wiped out by tabloids, magazines, television, and the Internet."
