\Research and planning – Draft 3 – redone

Media radio drama

The progression from draft 1 to draft 2 shows a development of the script. I recognised things which I had left out and made the script disjointed. The part in the script where rather than the children knowing the words off by heart , they get taught them instead. This small paragraph is supposed to show the innocence in the children. To them its just  a game and the woman is being nice to them ; but in reality the piece is very literal. Witches live in my story and are not just part of fiction . They are portrayed as good , healing women who only have love and warmth for their home and environment.

The archers – The archers is a long going soap opera taht was first aired in 1951 and is still going to the present day. Its format follows varoed ranges of different story lines. It is similar to those of soap operas aired on television.

The archers deals with situations related to most people’s different lives. The archers prides itself on thorough research and reflection of real rurual life. The archers is about : The archer family who are related to the aldriges and to several other ambridge families.

Womans Hour -Womans hour simlarly consists of 15 minute episodes, which broadcast every week day.

The subjects womans hour cover are varied and are not just for women. Womans hour is not a soap and therefore does not have the same content to the archers. It screens pieces such as new novels over a week or two period. It also deals with life issues that people can have discussions about, live on air.

The show broadcasts a wide range of medias.

These images show the styles and contrast of music and the way that it is advertised. The colours of the backgrounds represent the styles and reactions to the music. Russel Johnson’s style of music is deep and operatic . The white background is a representation of him . He performs as a solo artist ; simple and obvious. This colour represents this . The way the artist is standing also represents him and his music . It almost a visage of what you are going to see and get if you go and see him sing .

The advert of JLS shows a black , modern background . The style of music is pop/r and b . It important to advertise in a way that will properly represent what you are trying to sell.

This piece inspired my radio drama because its about a boy who stumbles upon a witch convention. The witches have a plan to rid the world of all children . This movie is very unrealistic , but its done in a way that would scare young children.

This piece influenced my radio drama by giving it a twist . Witches live their own lives out of modern society and this is very much what my radio drama is about. Grandma Champney only allows her family into this part of her life because she is diseased. They had never known anything about it before . The film the witches however promotes witches to be evil and scary , this is not the message that I am trying to put across.

In the film the witches use a human disguise and actually look like monsters underneath the plastic visage. This shows thw witches to be sub human and not part of the human race. Wiches have many connotaions including : scary , strange, doctors, spell binding , old , underworld and real . I am trying to forget the negative connotations focused on witches and give them a more magical and secret beginning.

In my radio drama witches are real people but have different lives away from the current world . They are not in it , but they are also not out of it. They live in a world in between .

However I cannot make the characters to be completely nomal for e.g. they grow old , but they keep growing old and only die when they go back into the current world to live out the rest of their lives.They cannot go back if they are past a certain age because other wise they simply will not exist there .
