From newspapers to real

time Tv
Made by Delia Osepciuc

Reasons why newspapers die


The internet
The cable news
Cost (Why to pay for something which is free

on the internet ? )
No passionated people for journalism
Impractical (its completely impractical to dig
through some newspapers to ascertain a news
story from last year; whereas with the
internet, archives exist and you only need a
computer )

Is it better to read the news from


newspapers or from Tv?
Newspapers
Perspective and analysis are

the advantage of newspapers.


It can tell you why, and can
provide additional
perspectives on what
happened. Newspapers have
both the space for words and
the time for perspective.
But a disadvantage is that a

newspaper can tell you what


happened yesterday (there are
almost no evening papers
left).

TV
Television news has the

advantage of immediacy and


vividness. TV can show you
what's happening right now,
anywhere in the world.
TV's disadvantage is that it is

very short on perspective and


analysis. Time is at a premium
and images take primacy over
words.
It can be a powerful tool for

verification. ( advantage)

History of newspapers in UK
After 1600 the national government in England began printing official
newsletters. In 1622 the first English-language weekly magazine, "A
current of General News" was published and distributed in England in
an 8- to 24-page quarto format.
By the 1500s, printing was firmly in the royal jurisdiction, and printing
was restricted only to English subjects. The Crown imposed strict
controls on the distribution of religious or political printed materials.
In 1538, Henry VIII of England decreed that all printed matter had to
be approved by the Privy Council before publication. By 1581, the
publication of seditious material had become a capital offence.
In the 17 century the press was now free. The Oxford Gazette was
printed in 1665 by Muddiman in the middle of the turmoil of the Great
Plague of London and was, strictly speaking, the first periodical to
meet all the qualifications of a true newspaper. It was printed twice a
week by royal authority and was soon renamed the London Gazette.

History of newspapers in UK
By the beginning of the eighteenth century, Britain was an increasingly
stable and prosperous country with an expanding empire, technological
progress in industry and agriculture and burgeoning trade and
commerce. A new upper middle class consisting of merchants, traders,
entrepreneurs and bankers was rapidly emerging - educated, literate
and increasingly willing to enter the political discussion and participate
in the governance of the country. The result was a boom in journalism,
in newspapers and magazines. London's The Gentleman's Magazine,
first published in 1731, was the first general-interest magazine.
Journalism in the first half of the 18th century produced many great
writers such as Daniel Defoe, Jonathan Swift, Joseph Addison, Richard
Steele, Henry Fielding, and Samuel Johnson. Men such as these edited
newspapers, or wrote essays for the popular press on topical issues.
Their material was entertaining and informative and was met with an
insatiable demand from ordinary citizens of the middle class, who were
beginning to participate in the flow of ideas and news.

History of TV news
Television news broadcasting in the UK, as in most of Europe, was
introduced as an extension of radio broadcasting. The UK was
unusual in developing a television service before 1939. Its
development was the responsibility of the BBC.
It was 1952 before the signal could be received by 81 per cent of the
population. The television service required a viewing licence on top
of the existing radio licence, and by 1955 the number of television
licence payers had risen to four and a half million (out of around
fourteen million households).
The highly controversial introduction of commercial or independent
television (ITV) in 1955, in London and then around the country did
much to fire up the BBC, which was allowed to introduce a second
channel with colour and a higher resolution picture in 1964.

History of TV news
Channel 4 went on air in 1982 with a new remit, to widen the range
of programming and to serve a diverse range of audiences not
served by the BBC and ITV. Channel 4 was innovative in several
different ways. It was a public sector organisation that was funded
via advertising revenue, initially sold by the ITV companies. It
didnt make its own programmes, but commissioned independent
companies as a broadcaster-publisher and created a new form of
television channel.
