To illustrate my views on this debate, I will be comparing and contrasting the novel and film versions of William Golding's The Lord of the Flies and Toni Morrison's Beloved. While both novels and films provide their audience with a great form of entertainment, each genre has it’s pros and cons and deciding whether a novel or film tells a better story is dependent on the audiences particular preferences. Novels allow the reader to create the images, voices, and background of the story using their imagination to visualize the story for themselves. On the other hand ,a good director can take a great piece of literature and turn it into an amazing visual experience. However, the film is dependent on the directors vision and audience has little say on how the story is portrayed.
The radio of the twenty-first century has changed considerably since the early broadcasts in the 1920s. It has faced the threat of the television and monopolies. It grew as a business, an entertainment, a technology and a means of communication. Although it has changed it still serves as a mass medium by which millions of people in the United States and around the world get and give information and more commonly entertainment.

Television has had a huge effect on the United States, shaping multiple facets of everyday life such as politics, news, and sports. In an article titled “History of Television” written by Mitchell Stephens, a professor of journalism and mass communications at NYU, he states that, “Few inventions have had as much effect on contemporary American society as television. Before 1947 the number of U.S. homes with television sets could be measured in the thousands. By the late 1990s, 98 percent of U.S. homes had at least one television set, and those sets were on for an average of more than seven hours a day” (Stephens 1). It is clear that television has had a huge impact on our everyday lives.
The emergence of television was a source of entertainment and information, where advertising was very influential to all age groups of the time. The late 60’s was a period where long held values and norms were challenged to the extent of changing the way the world interpreted life. This revolution was definitely one for the media to capture in every way possible through music, television, film, and written forms such as magazines. By the late sixties FM radio had replaced AM radio as the focal points being Rock and Roll music, then into the seventies psychedel... ... middle of paper ... ...ages. Magazines like rolling stone embraced and reported on the hippy counterculture during the late nineteen sixties and seventies and its rise to fame was successful due to such bands and artists as the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Jimi Hendrix.
I expected a greater range of interpretations of the crew, similar to fan art of characters from novels or more specifically the podcast Welcome to Night Vale, which vary greatly. Instead, Cabin Pressure fan art is closer to that of television or film, and is heavily base... ... middle of paper ... ... It is both within canon, as the characters are portrayed as they are in the original and crashing is physically possible in their world, but also breaks canon since John Finnemore is not going to kill off the entire cast. Fan-made material is a way to expand Cabin Pressure from audio-only to visual mediums, whether it be a drawing or video. And I for one, am happy with the results, even when they make me tear up.
The Styles and Purposes of Radio Advertising Radio in the UK is provided by the BBC and commercial radio companies, and is broadcast by AM and FM, and a variety of digital platforms. One of the purposes of radio advertising like any other form of advertising is obviously to sell products, but the main purpose of radio advertising is to make money for radio stations. Commercial radio stations, as the name suggests, are funded by the sale of advertising, promotions and sponsorship. There are three national services (INRs - Classic FM, Virgin Radio and Talk Sport), fifteen ‘regional’ services (IRRs - generally covering three major cities) and more than 240 local services (ILRs). In general, most cities have at least one FM service and one AM service, although major cities (London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow) have a wider choice of commercial listening.
However, perceptions between the two differ from even each other. As Lupack says: In asserting an adaptation we are not really comparing book with film but rather interpretation with interpretation - the novel that we ourselves have recreated in our imaginations, out of which we have constructed our own individualized “movie,” and the novel on which the filmmaker has worked a parallel transformation. (10) Although we do have our different perceptions about the novel and the story within it, these perceptions are, more or less, similar to each other. As these only vary so much from each other, they can still be a considerably veritable basis of comparison for the two versions of this story, the versions focused on being the novel and the the film. When comparing between our variations, we can compare the changes to see “how much of written work’s plot and characterization has been translated into the new medium, how comprehensive and intelligent an understanding of the original (its strengths, its weaknesses) underlies the translation” (Hunter 159).
The Emergence of Satellite Radio While the transition of television to a digital technology with its improved picture and sound quality has been a much publicized and controversial process, television's venerable ancestor, radio, has stayed in the background. But this year, in the United States, radio broadcasting is making its own digital leap. Two start-ups are introducing a new type of radio broadcast--subscription-based digital audio sent from satellites. With satellite digital audio radio services (SDARS), as they're called, listeners will be able to tune in to the same radio stations anywhere in the United States. SDARS differs from so-called digital music services, in which direct broadcast satellite or cable system operators provide digitized and compressed audio over their networks, both because of its programming and because SDARS can be received in a moving car, where much of today's radio listening takes place; existing digital audio services cannot.
For the past 100 years, television has become one of the key technologies to modern population. Not only does it have the ability to transform and adapt various domestic, national and cultural contexts, but have a seemingly infinite variety of programme genres, as well. What is more, it shares a quality with radio of being able to broadcast events to the public as they happen. This capacity is sometimes connected to television’s characteristic “liveness”. Television is at a crucial moment in its development.
Television is a much easier alternative than obtaining news through print. A third and very important reason that print is the less effective method of obtaining information is time. It takes much longer than watching television or listening to the radio. For example, if a person works a lot and spends his other time taking care of a family and driving to and from work, then that person is going to choose the radio over the newspaper.
