BBC Television News Archives
live news

A BBC news bulletin designed for television – BBC News and Newsreel – finally arrived on 5 July 1954.

Behind the scenes there was continuing conflict over editorial control. The radio news specialists based near Broadcasting House insisted on retaining responsibility for editorial policy, including headlines and story content. Only on those terms did they allow the TV service to get on with its job of looking after the pictures.

The result was a programme of two halves. It was Richard Baker who read the very first introduction: "Here is an illustrated summary of the news. It’ll be followed by the latest film of events and happenings at home and abroad."

All that appeared on screen during the summary was a series of stills – photographs, maps and so on. The newsreader could be heard – but not seen. All the film came in the second half.

"Crazy", was the verdict of the TV men involved; the formula was "absolutely ghastly". "As visually impressive as the fat stock prices," said one newspaper.

Within weeks, BH gave its blessing to faces being seen on screen – but only those of its own radio correspondents.

First to get the call was the parliamentary correspondent, ER Thompson. One of the big problems was the lack of an autocue machine, he recalled later.

This meant he and his colleague were obliged forever to look away from the camera, to glance down at their scripts. The newspapers called them "the guilty men". But television news, of a sort, was up and running.

The amount of time devoted to news on BBC TV more than doubled between 1954 and 1955.

John Cody Fidler-Simpson CBE (born 9 August 1944) is an English foreign correspondent. He is world affairs editor of BBC News. He has spent all his working life at the BBC. He has reported from more than 120 countries, including thirty war zones, and has interviewed many world leaders.

Simpson was born in London and says in his autobiography that his father was an anarchist. He was educated at Dulwich College Preparatory School and St Paul’s School, followed by Magdalene College, Cambridge, where he read English and was editor of Granta magazine. In 1965 he was a member of the Magdalene University Challenge team. A year later Simpson started as a trainee sub-editor at BBC radio news.

Desmond John Humphrys (born 17 August 1943) is a Welsh author, journalist and presenter of radio and television, who has won many national broadcasting awards. From 1981 to 1987 he was the main presenter for the Nine O’Clock News, the flagship BBC news television programme, and since 1987 he has been a presenter on the award-winning BBC Radio 4 programme, Today. He presents the programme with Justin Webb, James Naughtie, Evan Davis and Sarah Montague. Since 2003 he has been the host of the BBC Two television quiz show Mastermind.

Humphrys has a reputation as a tenacious and forthright interviewer; occasionally politicians have been very critical of his style after being subjected to a tough interview on live radio.

Humphrys was born in Pearl Street, Splott, son of Winifred Mary (Matthews), a hairdresser, and Edward George Humphrys, a self-employed French polisher. He was one of five children. His parents encouraged him to do his homework and he passed the eleven plus exam. He became a pupil at Cardiff High School (then a grammar school), but he did not fit into the middle-class environment there. He was an average pupil and left school at the age of 15 years to become a teenaged reporter on the Penarth Times. He later joined the Western Mail.

Richard Baker OBE (born 15 June 1925) is an English broadcaster, best known as a newsreader for BBC News from 1954 to 1982. He was a contemporary of Kenneth Kendall and Robert Dougall and was the first person to read the BBC Television News (in voiceover) in 1954.

The son of a plasterer, Baker was born in Willesden, North London, and educated at the former Kilburn Grammar School and at Peterhouse, Cambridge. After graduation, he was an actor at Birmingham Rep and a teacher at Wilson’s School, Camberwell. He served in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve during World War II and was awarded the Royal Naval Reserve decoration.

Musical Composition

Musical composition can happen in advance with an aim towards repeat performance or it can happen on the spot when musicians improvise or jam. Composition describes the formal construction of a piece of music, both it?s incarnation on paper and its performance incarnation. Originally Western music was composed for the church and for worship. Its function was to be repeated but the artistic/creative elements of musical composition were lacking as the music itself was more pedagogical in purpose. Once polyphonic sounds began to creep in, composers began to record music on paper for future performance. This begins to happen when the view of music starts to change from that of a form of worship to a form of worship that also provides audio pleasure.

There is a mathematical precision to musical composition that is present in most studies of musical theory. Though music is a creative art, its composition and performance is both scientific and mathematical and adheres to certain rules of rhythm and spacing on the page in order to sound a particular way.

Traditional Gregorian Chant notation, some of the first written music in Western culture, is written in ?neumes?. Neumes are the most basic building block of musical notation and predate the introduction of the five line staff notation. These original notations were simple dashes on a page. They did not always indicate a note to be sung as far as the pitch was concerned, but, rather, were an indication in what kind of sound was to be made and sometimes in what order. Though neumes are visually reminiscent of their later incarnation in the five line staff notation, their rules were completely different. Two, dashes, one a top of the other, might mean that the bottom ?note? was to be sung first followed by the top. Other things are very close in range. For instance, when a dot was placed after a neume it was meant to indicate that the note was to be a held for a length of time. This same structure exists in modern music in the five line staff notation.

The earliest neumes were actually Aramaic, and did not originate in the early Christian Church. They were originally used to indicate how and with what tonal attributes a religious text was meant to be read. The utilization of neumes was the first step towards the composition and formal construction of music.

RC Airplane Radio

radio
by Xenoc

Have you ever seen someone playing with an RC airplane radio? Or perhaps you have seen someone play with a similar radio controlled toys, such as cars, fantasy vehicles, helicopters, sailboats, submarines, animals, trucks, blimps, motor boats, and robots? Are you the type of person who is always curious about how various technologies and items work?

 

Although the mechanics of how an airplane radio operates is a bit different in comparison to some of the other radio controlled toys, all rely on the same basic principle. In addition, all radio controlled toys have the same four parts, known as the transmitter, receiver, motor(s), and power source.

 

The transmitter is held in your hands to control the toy and sends radio waves to the receiver. The power source in the transmitter is usually a 9 volt battery that provides power for both the controls and signal transmission. However, do not confuse radio controlled toys with remote controlled toys, because radio controlled toys are always wireless. Whereas, remote controlled toys have a wire connecting the controller and toy.

 

As for frequency level, most radio controlled toys function at 27 MHz or 49 MHz. Transmitters can also come in single function or full function. A single function controller usually has one trigger that moves the toy forward when pressed and backwards when released. A full function controller allows you to move the toy forward, backward, forward and left, forward and right, backward and left, and backward and right.

 

In an RC Airplane radio system the transmitter translates the motions into a radio signal. This process is known as modulation. In turn, the transmitter broadcasts the signal.

 

The receiver is an antenna and circuit board inside the toy that activates the motors within when it receives the radio waves from the transmitter. In an RC airplane radio system, the receiver picks up the data from the radio waves and sends it to each servo. A servo has a horn that is attached to its shaft and a control surface, also known as an engine throttle. As the servo rotates, the horn converts it into a linear movement. Because the motion of the servo is directly proportional to the movement of the control sticks on the transmitter, the control surfaces on the airplane move the way the stick on the transmitter is moved.

 

The motors are responsible for turning the wheels, steering the vehicle, operating the propellers, etc. The power source can be either a rechargeable battery pack or normal batteries. Usually radio controlled toys are powered by a rechargeable battery pack.

 

Most radio controlled toys, such as the rc airplane radio, uses the motor to guide a particular part, while another source of power provides locomotion. In the model airplane, a small gas-powered engine turns the propeller, while the RC motor controls the flaps.

 

Understanding how an RC airplane radio operates is just as simple as playing with it. The four parts making up this system are the transmitter, receiver, motor(s), and power source.

Roxette Live Sydney
live news
Image by Eva Rinaldi Celebrity and Live Music Photographer
Roxette have topped the charts three times down under in Australia and with a portfolio of massive hits including It Must Have Been Love, Joyride, Listen To Your Heart, How Do You Do, Sleeping In My Car, Dressed For Success and The Look, this is fully expected to be one of the best live music events of 2012.

Last night they drew strong numbers at the Sydney Entertainment Centre, and tonight they did it once again.

Promoter Live Nation had taken a chance of bringing the Swedish group out here after two other Australian promoters knocking them back. By all accounts Live Nation’s punt has paid back dividends, both to the fans, the group, and to the bottom line.

Scandanavian pop acts have an illustrious chart history here. Fellow Swede’s ABBA could vouch for that.

Entertainment industry experts have gone on record that its the Australia’s 30 to 40 year old audience remembering the powerful and emotional songs that they heard in their youth that explains the strong drawing pull.

It was back in 1995, not long after their commercial high spot, they didn’t perform to so many people.

Charm School is their first album in ten years and its built upon the foundation that made them great.

The band is the platform for vocalist Marie Fredriksson and songwriter and guitarist Per Gessle.

The appreciative crowd lapped up Dressed For Success, Joy Ride and The Look.

‘It Must Have Been Love’ was a definite karaoke moment to say the least.

They combine really catchy numbers, solid voices, charisma, fashion sense and strong drawing power.

The band is expected to continue to draw strong audience numbers while touring Australia.

Tracks

1. Dressed For Success
2. Sleeping In My Car
3. The Big L
4. Wish I Could Fly
5. Stars
6. She’s Got Nothing On But…
7. Perfect Day

14. Dangerous
15. Joyride
16. Watercolours In The Rain
17. Spending My Time
18. The Look
19. Listen To Your Heart
20. Church Of Your Heart

1927 Opens The Show…

1927 were a perfect band to open things up for Roxette.

The are an Aussie pop/rock band formed in Melbourne in 1987 with James Barton on drums, Bill Frost on bass guitar, his brother Garry Frost on guitar and keyboards, and Erik Weideman on vocals, guitar and keyboards. They were extremely popular in the late 1980s and early 1990s with their major hit songs "If I Could", "Compulsory Hero" and "That’s When I Think of You" and their multi-platinum #1 album …ish.

Some of the crowd was so into 1927, it would be reasonable to suggest that for some fans 1927 were the stars, supported by Roxette. Whatever the case, it was an awesome double act.

Tracks

1. Fright Of Your Life
2. To Love Me
3. Don’t Forget Me
4. You’ll Never Know
5. Tell Me A Story
6. Hero
7. If I Could

For this reason, you need to prepare a contract that will address your interests too, or have the firm amend their contract to cater for your needs.

One of the things you will need to address is the working hours, the time the DJ will start and stop playing music. You will have to be careful when drafting this clause.

You will appreciate the importance of this clause more so if you will paying by the hour. Also, you will be able to plan and space your announcements better with this information.
