Introduction

Write a detailed analysis of the edition of a TV news programme, drawing conclusion about its target audience. The TV news programme on which I am going to write a detailed analysis of is the six o'clock edition of London Tonight on ITV. As soon as the program starts the viewers are able to get some first impressions from the ident and the opening sequence. The ident is a style of topography and graphic design used to identify a company, programme or product. At the start the presenter announces the news he has planned to report in this edition. While doing this he uses complex words, such as awash, this is accompanied with dynamic and attention grabbing tune with drums which mimic a heart beat. After he announces the summary there are images of people at work, double-decker buses moving, and pigeons eating. These are all familial scenes of London and these are known around the world. Also there are colours of blue and red which represent Great Britain's Flag. ...read more.

During this bulletin the viewer may notice that all these stories are human interest as they regard Londoners in some way or another. For example the floods have occurred to people all over London and so many would like to know about it. ...read more.

Conclusion

Also to add a bit of variety to the show, after this news story has been announced there is a live link with Tony Blair the Prime Minister of England. Also in that article there is some pre-recorded visuals of an interview with the Prime Minister from earlier. During the second part of the programme there is a lot of informal language used between the presenters regarding articles that are softer. This is a way of making the story more appealing. For example article 11 regarding the new England cricket star shows him packing his bags for the trip. While packing he includes some men's magazines. Then after the link back to the studio the male presenter makes a comment, '' be careful, too much will damage your eyesight.'' This is supposed to be some humour from the presenter to liven up the story. In conclusion I believe this news bulletin is aimed at people who are aged 25 to those aged to about 60 because many people that age go to work and don't arrive home until 6pm. That's when the programme starts. I come to this conclusion as ...read more.
