Fiction

Andrew Tolson has written the first book-length study of talk on radio and television. It is an excellent introduction to the key issues at stake in the analysis of talk and an authoritative guide to its study as the primary communicative medium of radio and television. It shows the range and diversity of talk in many different genres of broadcasting. Teachers and students will find it an indispensable resource for getting to grips with how radio and television really work as media of communication, between broadcasters and audiences, in the contexts of ordinary daily life. -- Paddy Scannell, University of Westminster One of the strnegths of Tolson's welcome new book is to show just how such interchanges can be traced, marked out and understood... the book is a consistently excellent resource for media studies students, by condensing complex theoretical models and providing lucid applications of them to show how the same analytical repertoire can be employed across a wide variety of insitutional forms in both television and radio. -- John Farnsworth, New Zealand Broadcasting School The Radio Journal Andrew Tolson has written the first book-length study of talk on radio and television.
