This DVD video pack contains three sections: Talk shows; Speeches and Interviews. It provides new and stimulating contexts for Media Studies, including practical production; explicit speaking and listening skills; the reading of non-fiction and the promotion of citizenship and thinking skills. Talk Shows Covers media language; debates about talk shows; the features of everyday conversation; the differences between spoken and written English, and standard and non-standard forms. On DVD: Vanessa, Kilroy, and Rory Bremner's sketch of The Jerry Springer Show. Speeches Covers the use of gesture, tone, pace and rhetorical devices; the use of evidence and anecdote; how to structure a talk, and how to identify the main elements of what is being said. On DVD: Oona King MP speaking to the House in the debate on the Stephen Lawrence inquiry; Peter Lilley being coached by Jeffrey Archer on speech writing and delivery; Margaret Thatcher's and Neil Kinnock's conference speeches, and Tony Benn's prize-winning speech to the House against the motion to bomb Iraq in the first Gulf War. Interviews Covers media language; forms of questioning; the use and effect of gesture and body language; the use and abuse of politeness principles, and how to recognise when a speaker is being ambiguous or deliberately vague. On DVD: Parkinson and Elton John; Ian Wright and Prince Naseem; Denise van Outen and Posh Spice; Michael Owen and Dion Dublin; two heroin addicts; Mrs Merton and Jimmy Hill; Jeremy Paxman and Sir Paul Condon; Harriet Harman and John Humphrys (audio), and Jeremy Paxman and Tony Blair. The DVD also features special interviews with Tony Benn, Oona King (MP), Deborah Tannen (linguist and writer) and Rory Bremner (satirist).
