With the number of hours spent before the television increasing steadily, the attempt is no longer to assert the un-parallel influence of the visual medium over its audience. The need now is to train a skilled workforce which can develop software that entertains as it educates. This book is an attempt to train such a workforce.

Designed to address the students directly, this book introduces learners to every genre of TV journalism-news, documentaries, interviews, entertainment shows. It trains them to 'identify' news, to ask the right questions, to think 'visually', to script, to use voice and speech for greater impact and the importance of body language.

Besides fulfilling the academic needs in the classroom, the book also meets the functional needs of professionals in the field. Each chapter is provided with numerous practical exercises using authentic material from print, audio and video pro-grammes which familiarize students to actual work pressures and settings. These exercises make demands on the application of a variety of skills and abilities, such as listening, speaking, reading and writing. Interviews with media experts like Rajat Sharma, Amita Kohli and others provide valuable lessons to beginners, besides giving an insight into the profession.

The book adopts an interactive, learner-centered approach which makes the reading engaging and learning interesting. In all, a valuable book for both teachers and students of journalism.
