OCR AS TV Drama - regional identity...?

Discussion in 'Media studies' started by ms media, Mar 11, 2011.

  1. Got most of the others covered but still struggling with this one. Anyone found any good clips to use? Just don't think my students have any idea about such subtle differences. I asked them to name cities and counties in the north (we are in South London) and one of the smartest students said 'Hertfordshire'. God help me.
     
  2. <address>We look at 'Fallout' a Channel 4 thing from a couple of years ago. You can get it from Richmond. It seems to be a 'TV drama version' of Bullet boy- definately inner London based.</address><address></address><address>With all the hoo-ha you could comare it to Midsommer Murders?</address><address></address><address></address><address>http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12756778</address><address>http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-12741847</address><address></address><address></address><address>P.S. No clue as to how I made this italic. I can't change it back!</address>
     
  3. To get my students thinking about this year I showed them a short extract from the No 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - I know that's pushing the 'regional' but they could see how it had been constructed to challenge preconceptions of a geographical area - lots of water, pop culture references, a flamboyantly gay man, a snobbish hierarchy etc. Also, I know it's a film, but I used extracts from 'Ratcatcher' to tease both class and regional identity last year.
