The book is a scholarly and creative consideration of audiovisual broadcasting and what makes a TV performance professional. It combines an academic approach to TV News with a practical understanding of production and the new pressures bearing down on the industry. Combining a real-world understanding with a scholarly approach, it offers valuable new insights for aspiring journalists, students, researchers and lecturers into what is still the most powerful medium for news and information in the world. -This book is an exciting and challenging look at how we can understand the way we regard people and how we create and make public our views of them in and through television. The author provides a critically engaging and detailed analysis of the practical aspects of television journalism and the ethical values replete within it as well as how it is complicit in the construction of the manifold mediated identities of those caught up in the increasingly two-way relationship between broadcaster and audience. This is a wide ranging and well researched account of the dynamics of the significance and impact of television journalism in all its richness and ambiguity.- (Prof. Jackie Harrison, Chair, Centre for Freedom of the Media (CFOM), Joint Head of Department and Director of Research Department of Journalism Studies, University of Sheffield, UK)"

Mystery and Suspense in Creative Writing presents a systematic analysis of a very important aspect of writing by integrating it with journalistic, media, and communication studies. The book examines the specific rules for creating intrigue and suspense, and confronts their universal features with selected literary texts. The individual texts emphasize the importance of understanding the emotions through transformation of various archetypes. The rules postulated by creative writing for building drama and tension in such texts often deal with this profound issue. They are thus not an end in themselves, but actually lead to more mature writing. Therefore, they essentially contribute to developing one's creative talent and communication skills. The paradigm of creative writing serves to shape the creativity of students of various disciplines, including not only literary studies and journalism, but also such diverse areas as medicine and information technology.

Sudden Genius?

The Gradual Path to Creative Breakthroughs

The highly admired scientist Linus Pauling, a double Nobel laureate in chemistry and peace, was once asked by a student. 'Dr Pauling, how do you have so many good ideas?' Pauling thought for a moment and replied: 'Well, David, I have a lot of ideas and throw away the bad ones.' Where do ideas come from? Why do some people have many more of them than others? How do you distinguish the good ideas from the bad? Most intriguing of all, perhaps, why do the best ideas sometimes strike in a flash of 'sudden genius'? These questions are the subject of this book. Andrew Robinson explores the exceptional creativity in both scientists and artists by following the trail that led ten individuals from childhood to the achievement of a famous creative breakthrough as an adult, in archaeology, architecture, art, biology, chemistry, cinema, music, literature, photography, and physics. Broken into three parts, the book begins with the scientific study of creativity, covering talent, genius, intelligence, memory, dreams, the unconscious, savant syndrome, synaesthesia, and mental illness. The second part tells the stories of five breakthroughs by scientists and five by artists, ranging from Curie's discovery of radium and Einstein's theory of special relativity to Mozart's composing of The Marriage of Figaro and Virginia Woolf's writing of Mrs Dalloway. Robinson concludes by considering what highly creative people who achieve breakthroughs have in common; whether breakthroughs in science and art follow patterns; and whether they always involve imaginative leaps and even 'genius'.

Internationalization of the Chinese TV Sector

In this reader media experts discuss the prospects and problems of program exchange between German and Chinese Broadcasters. They explain that program exchange is not the cockaigne one could assume with regard to the non-rivalry of media content and the huge Chinese TV market (more than 300 million TV households and an estimated 180,000 hours of weekly broadcast time across all TV platforms), but that many economic peculiarities of the media that only can be read in the footnotes of economic text books are highly relevant in practice. To trade TV programs with China thus requires a solid knowledge about the TV business in general, but also about the Chinese media order and the Chinese society, and the Chinese way of business.

Die Geschichte von Addie und Long Boy und wie sie beide fröhlichen Herzens auf anderer Leute Kosten lebten

Der Leser sei gewarnt: das durchtriebene Pflänzchen Addie wird ihm gewiß das Herz stehlen. Aufs Stehlen versteht die Kleine sich nämlich, sie ist ein wahres Naturtalent. Das muß sogar der gewiefte Long Boy anerkennen, der die arme Waise unter seine Fittiche und in seine Gaunerschule nimmt. So lernt Addie schnell, wie man tränenseligen Witwen Prachtbibeln mit Widmung aus dem Jenseits andreht oder wie man eine schrottreife Karre in einen funkelnagelneuen Straßenkreuzer verwandelt, indem man einen hartgesottenen Gebrauchtwarenhändler elegant aufs Kreuz legt. Ihre Begabung läßt sie auch dann nicht im Stich, als es darum geht, Long Boy aus den Netzen einer wasserstoffblonden Schaubudenschönheit zu befreien, um ihn wieder fürs Geschäft flottzumachen. Und so kurven diese beiden schrägen Vögel im kanariengelben Cadillac zwischen Florida und Oklahoma fröhlich von einem Kaff zum anderen, nie um einen pfiffigen Trick verlegen, anderer Leute Geld in die eigene Tasche zu praktizieren. Immer machen die beiden ihren Schnitt, auch wenn einmal ein Geschäft schiefgeht. Eine abenteuerliche Flucht führt mitten hinein ins Dollar-Paradies der Baumwolle, mit der man besonders viel verdienen kann, wenn man sich nicht die überflüssige Mühe macht, sie anzubauen, ehe man sie verkauft. Größere Geschäfte – größere Gefahren: schon nahen im Foyer des Grand-Hotels von Memphis zwei dunkelgekleidete Herren mit den Handschellen, als Major Carter F. Lee alias Colonel Culpepper rettend eingreift. Er ist einer der Großen der Branche; unter seiner kundigen Anleitung macht Long Boy steile Karriere.

Über Tyrannei

Zwanzig Lektionen für den Widerstand

Wir sind nicht klüger als die Menschen, die erlebt haben, wie überall in Europa die Demokratie unterging und Faschismus, Nationalsozialismus und Kommunismus kamen. Aber einen Vorteil haben wir. Wir können aus ihren Erfahrungen lernen. „Leiste keinen vorauseilenden Gehorsam.“ So lautet die erste von 20 Lektionen für den Widerstand, mit denen Timothy Snyder die Bürger der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika vorbereitet auf das, was gestern noch unvorstellbar zu sein schien: einen Präsidenten, der das Gesicht der Demokratie verstümmelt und eine rechtsradikale Tyrannei errichtet. Doch nicht nur in den USA sind Populismus und autoritäres Führertum auf dem Vormarsch. Auch in Europa rückt die Gefahr von rechts immer näher – als ob es das 20. Jahrhundert und seine blutigen Lehren niemals gegeben hätte. Snyders historische Lektionen, die international Aufsehen erregt haben, sind ein Leitfaden für alle, die jetzt handeln wollen - und nicht erst, wenn es zu spät ist. Lektion 8: „Setze ein Zeichen.“ Dieses Buch tut es. Tun Sie es auch.

Eine Fülle inspirierender Fallgeschichten erzählt von Menschen, die in der Rente angefangen haben Klavier zu spielen, zu malen oder in ferne Länder zu reisen.
