Writing for Visual Media focuses on the fundamental problems faced by writers beginning to create content for media that is to be seen rather than read. This book takes the student from basic concepts to a first level of practice through an explicit method that trains students to consistently identify a communications problem, think it through, and find a resolution before beginning to write. Through successive exercises, it helps them acquire the skill and confidence they need to write effective films, corporate and training videos, documentary, ads, PSAs, tv series and other types of visual narrative. Writing for Visual Media also has a chapter on writing for interactive media, including promotions, instructional programs, and games. The book makes the student aware of current electronic writing tools and scriptwriting software through a companion CD-ROM, which offers links to demos and enriches the content of the printed book with video, audio, and sample scripts.

The Committee decided to examine the local media landscape in the UK as it was very much aware of the challenges facing local and regional newspapers, including the impact of the recession and structural changes within the industry, which have resulted in a significant downturn in advertising revenues, a growing number of job cuts and newspaper title closures. These pressures have also had a serious impact on local commercial radio stations and regional television. Traditional media platforms also face the reality of changing consumer behaviour with people increasingly using the internet as their source of information. The report examines the following issues: the impact on local media of recent and future developments in digital convergence, media technology and changing consumer behaviour; the impact of newspaper closures on independent local journalism and access to local information; how to fund quality local journalism; the appropriateness and effectiveness of print and electronic publishing initiatives undertaken directly by public sector bodies at the local level; the role and effects of search engines and online content aggregators on local media; the future of local radio and television news; the desirability of changes to the regulatory framework for print and electronic local media, including cross-media ownership and merger regulations; the opportunities and implications of BBC partnerships with local media; the extent of plurality required in local media markets; incentives for investment in local content; opportunities for 'hyper-local' media services.

Dean Starkman takes on what has become a dominant perspective on the future of news in the digital age as personified by three well known media thinkers—Jay Rosen, Clay Shirky, and Jeff Jarvis—who have dominated the "future of news" debate. Starkman makes a powerful case that the perspective that these three represent, despite their many useful insights, is in the end corrosive to public-service journalism.

Key Readings in Journalism brings together over thirty essential writings that every student of journalism should know. Designed as a primary text for undergraduate students, each reading was carefully chosen in response to extensive surveys from educators reflecting on the needs of today’s journalism classroom. Readings range from critical and historical studies of journalism, such as Walter Lippmann’s Public Opinion and Michael Schudson’s Discovering the News, to examples of classic reporting, such as Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward’s All the President’s Men. They are supplemented by additional readings to broaden the volume’s scope in every dimension, including gender, race, and nationality. The volume is arranged thematically to enable students to think deeply and broadly about journalism—its development, its practice, its key individuals and institutions, its social impact, and its future—and section introductions and headnotes precede each reading to provide context and key points for discussion.
