Sound in print

Marshall Mcluhan, the Canadian professor of Mass Communication, in his work Understanding Media gave various meanings to sound, visual and print media. He stated that though each medium has its own strength limits and weaknesses they tend to meet at a certain point in development.

Radio broadcasting accordingly has its own strengths and limitations s it traced a long way via electronics. Today, the radio broadcasting is not known by that term instead just denoted by sound broadcasting or sound narrow casting. It has its limits with print as well as visual media.

Sound broadcasting depends to a wide extent on print as a result of the information sources. The vice versa too is extant as the source material that is disseminated via sound media too come to be printed in some form. As such sound and print are interlinked.

In the initial stages the BBC experimented the printing of broadcast material to restore the knowledge thus disseminated. The birth of the weekly periodical termed as The Listener is a result of the same. Most countries which had commonwealth relations followed suit.

The Listener not only restored the wealth of the broadcast material but also opened up new directions in the rediscovery of literary and cultural trends paving the way to a strong link in broadcast publications of the plays, talks and radio features.

Following the trail of the BBCs The Listener, the local broadcasting authorities in the formative stages of broadcasting brought out a Sinhala journal titled as Tarangani which means waves. This means to store the broadcast material such as plays, lyrics, poems, features and talks.

The local broadcasting, or sound broadcasting patterns, changed over the years. Commercial broadcasting and FM broadcasting entered paving the way for many challenges. The broadcast material too underwent changes as a result of the growth of the print media via journalism and publications.

Over the years, nevertheless, an effort has been maintained to bring out a periodical for the local listener linked to Radio and TV. As a result, though Tharangani came to a stop, several other periodicals entered the market. The one in current circulation is titled as Handa (The Sound) which has, to the credit of the SLBC authorities, sustained for the last three years bringing out more than 12 issues.

Handa is edited by Tilakaratne Kuruvitabandara and printed with a particular ideology and purpose. This being the clear-cut policy of maintaining a periodical meant for sound broadcasting. Those listeners as well as recipients of other media such as television and popular culture cinematography may find a wealth of source material linked to the discovery of the world of communities.

The current issue of Handa is meant to give a panoramic view of broadcasting which has completed 87 years of the way amid other challenges. Thus the editor envelops a major share of the reading material to the trends in music.

John Humphrys Highlights BBC 'Liberal Bias' And Defends Mishal Husain 'Good Looks' Comments

The BBC has been “broadly liberal”, not balanced on issues such as Europe and immigration and “grotesquely over-managed”, its own presenter John Humphrys has said. The Today programme co-host, 70, also defended a previous comment he made about Today co-host Mishal Husain’s good looks, and said that the pair get on well.

“I was making the point that it helps in the newsreading business – and this isn’t controversial, you only have to switch on the telly – to be young and beautiful and highly trained. She’s a proper journalist,” he said.

But the Mastermind presenter said that the programme needed more female presenters, telling the magazine, “the idea that you say, ‘Well, we’ve now got two [female presenters], that’s enough’, is daft.” Humphrys, whose then boss George Entwistle resigned as BBC director-general hours after his appearance on Today, defended his own rottweiler reputation, saying: “You don’t set out to have a row but when the row develops, you don’t necessarily want to recoil from it. It’s sometimes good radio.

“Sometimes it gets in the way and sometimes it can be illuminating. If the politician gets cross, it tells you something about the politician. So heated exchanges are not always a bad thing. The idea all the public ever wants to hear are reasoned discussions is nonsense.” Humphrey’s also criticised the large “irresponsible” pay-offs to some former BBC staff and said that money had, under previous regimes, been “chucked around”.

Tory MPs have previously accused BBC presenters of having left-wing political views. Humphrys said that he had voted for “most political parties,” but admitted to Radio Times magazine: “The BBC has tended over the years to be broadly liberal as opposed to broadly conservative for all sorts of perfectly understandable reasons.

“The sort of people we’ve recruited – the best and the brightest – tended to come from universities and backgrounds where they’re more likely to hold broadly liberal views than conservative.” He said that the corporation had made mistakes in the way it covered Europe and immigration but that the BBC was now more balanced.

“We weren’t sufficiently sceptical – that’s the most accurate phrase – of the pro-European case. We bought into the European ideal,” he said. “We weren’t sufficiently sceptical about the pro-immigration argument. We didn’t look at the potential negatives with sufficient rigour.

“I think we’re out of that now. I think we have changed.” Humphrys said that more needed to be done to cut down on excessive BBC management. “There are too many of them. I think they think that. I think (director-general) Tony Hall thinks that – I don’t know, I haven’t asked him, but I think he thinks that,” he said.

“Over the years we’ve been grotesquely over-managed, there’s no question. They’re now getting a grip on it. A lot have gone. I think more need to go.” He said that further resources should be devoted to Radio 4 flagship show Today, the “most important BBC programme” because “we’re as pared down as it’s possible to get” and that the programme needed to recruit more women presenters.

Oscars 2014: 12 Years a Slave, the hot favourite

Los Angeles, Feb 26:

The harrowing story of a free black mans nightmare experience of slavery is set to win the biggest prize in the movie world, with experts predicting that 12 Years a Slave is all but certain to win the Oscar for the years best picture.

The leading nominees are Gravity and American Hustle, each with 10 Oscar nominations, one more than 12 Years a Slave. But online bookies are taking bets at short odds of 4:1 that the drama by Steve McQueen will be the big winner on Sunday night when Hollywoods royalty assembles to hand out the 2013 honours.

The status of 12 Years a Slave as the overwhelming favourite to take home the best picture prize is mirrored on the awards website Goldderby.com where all but five of the 29 experts polled picked the shocking slave drama as their Oscar favourite.

The five hold-outs gave their vote to Gravity, the gripping space thriller from Alfonso Cuaron that stars Sandra Bullock and George Clooney as a couple of astronauts stranded in outer space.

The other early favourite for the Oscar, American Hustle, which picked up the Golden Globe for best comedy or musical, is no longer regarded as a realistic best picture frontrunner. This is due largely to the penchant often displayed by Oscar voters for more serious films that tackle heavyweight issues.

Other top nominees

Several of the nominees are smaller, more personal stories with only a few tackling big ideas in scope or emotion, says Eric Larnick, film critic at moviefone.com. Ultimately, it comes down to Gravity and 12 Years, and the Academy has always favoured the movie about the human condition against the one thats about the visual spectacle.

The other top nominees with six nods apiece are Captain Phillips, based on a true story about a ship hijacked by Somali pirates, Dallas Buyers Club about a sick cowboys attempt to secure experimental treatments for AIDS sufferers, and Nebraska, about an old mans quixotic road trip to claim an imagined lottery prize.

All the above movies will compete for best picture, along with Her, a futuristic romantic comedy about a man who falls in love with a computer avatar; Philomena, about an ageing womans search for the son taken away from her as a baby; and The Wolf of Wall Street, which tracks the life and excesses of a young millionaire trader in the US financial markets.
