Sound – Timeline and Timings

Show Outline

Here’s is my idea for my show timings

– Show intro monologue (who you are, what you’re going to talk about): 20 seconds

– Intro music jingle (if I was to make a sequence of shows I would repeat for each show so listeners identify the jingle with your show): 15 seconds

I want to create a pastiche jingle – this is a tune that sounds like another but is a way to get around copyright issue. I really need to find an upbeat, sporty and catchy tune which I could adapt. My first thoughts was to use Birdy wings. It’s catchy and inspiring to say the least.

– Topic 1 – Interview: 3.15

– Topic 2: Interlude (music or break): 10 seconds

– Topic 3:  Interview: 3.15

– Closing remarks (thank audience, thank guests, and talk about the next show): 20 seconds

– Closing music jingle (suggest same as Intro music jingle): 20 seconds

 

This structure is a rough outline to what my pod-cast will actually be.  It follows mandatory elements that we have to have in our piece and the timing or it runs approximately 8 mins long

Reflection- News in Brief

In a recent session the group was introduced to News in Brief also known as (NIB). These are mini stories/ articles that follow the sane structure as a larger story in the sense that it is the most important information given. A nib is only a short piece many a couple of hundred words or less. for the ‘Your News’ segment of the Hull Daily Mail, I have and will be writing multiple NIB’s for this segment using the methods of the introductions to news stories. News in brief is similar to an introduction for a leading story. Having a word count limit means it is harder to decipher the most important and key information.

When writing a nib, I will still try and use as many of the 5W’s as possible. (who, what, when, where, why) also use the same methods of writing a main story in the sense that you can’t be biased and have to verify that all the content is factually accurate. Also following the correct tone. As the story will be small the sentences are only short and snappy therefore no need for punctuation like commas. In reflection of having an attempt at writing a NIB, I feel slightly better as I now know what is required and the basic structure. This will help to make me a better practitioner of writing these for the supplement.
