So for my final blog about broadcast I thought it would be interesting to look at the history of broadcast standards, and how they have affected the broadcast medium as a whole, and, in particular, journalism.
We live in a digital world – and even the greatest film directors are entering. When reading about Sofia Coppola’s film “The Bling Ring’ premiering at the Cannes Film Festival, I pondered why reviews kept remembering to mention she had filmed in digital. Why is that such a big revelation? Turns out, it’s offending some big time film makers.
THE kak surrounding the Film and Publications (FPB) Amendment Bill will hit the fan again when public hearings are held on 2 and 3 May (ironically International Press Freedom Day). Just when some privileged South Africans learn to exploit their media freedom on the blogosphere, this facile regulation proposes ideas that could seriously curb freedom of expression and online media entrepreneurship.
