Understanding the Media is an invaluable guide for teachers of media studies. Focusing on the familiar media of television, the press, radio, comics and pop music, the book also examines a range of forms which cross boundaries between different media - news, chat-shows, drama, fiction, public relations and advertising. Andrew Hart stresses the relations between various forms of the media, and addresses issues of value, control, quality and ideology. The book has been developed from a series of programmes broadcast on BBC Radio 4. It includes practical examples of classroom activities and evaluations of their effectiveness, as well as detailed lesson plans.
