AUSTRALIA Summary: "This is an explosive look at the recent tumultuous years in the boardrooms and on the studio floors of Australian television. As the Nine and Seven networks traded blows, new technologies emerged and old personalities and management clung on for dear life, everyone fastened their seatbelts for a bumpy ride. From booze buses to ambulance chasing, mirrorballs to hotplates, from Sunrise to Today, Broadcast Wars gives us a fascinating insight into major media events, boardroom stoushes and fading stars' diva-like demands. Michael Bodey fearlessly analyses the personalities we love (and love to hate), the genres that came and went, and the machinations behind MasterChef, Dancing With The Stars, Underbelly, Packed To The Rafters and all the shows we love to watch and talk about. Broadcast Wars exposes the egos, the money and the powre manipulating our remote controls.

USA Summary: "Knowing, measuring and understanding media audiences has become a multi-billion dollar business. But the convention that underpins that business, audience ratings, is in crisis. Rating the Audience is the first book to show why and how audience ratings research became a convention, an agreement, and the first to interrogate the ways that agreement is now under threat. Taking a historical approach, the book looks at the evolution of audience ratings and the survey industry. It goes on to analyse today's media environment, looking at the role of the internet and the the increased difficulties it presents for measuring audiences. The book covers all the major players and controversies, such as Facebook's privacy rulings and Google's alliance with Nielson. Offering the first real comparative study, Rating the Audience is critical reading for media students and professionals." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Formerly CIP; Includes bibliographical references and index ISBN: 9781849663410 Donation: Donated by Senses of Cinema, 2013 Contents: -- list of figures -- list of tables -- preface -- acknowledgments -- 1.Why the Ratings Are Important -- Introduction -- The Single Number -- Summary -- 2.The Convention -- `The Crossleys' - Archibald Crossley -- Arthur C.

AUSTRALIA; LEGISLATION. AUSTRALIA; PORNOGRAPHY ON TV; RATING FOR TV. AUSTRALIA; SEX AND TV; VIOLENCE ON TV. AUSTRALIA Summary: "Program classification issues have long been at the core of a heated public debate focusing on what can be shown on television. Because television is readily accessible to nearly all people of all ages, it is accepted that program standards are required to regulate what we are able to watch on television. However, any government regulation of television programs still raises sensitive issues. On the one hand, there is concern that even the most indirect intrusion into programming can destroy artistic intention and creativity. On the other hand, community opinion indicates that television and broadcasting in general, should maintain certain social objectives [...] This monograph is concerned principally with public attitudes to classification issues: namely, sex, violence and offensive language and knowledge of the classification system" - FROM INTRODUCTION ISBN: 0642168857 More info
