How it Happens: At the T. V. Station

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Hazel Buys
Although the evening newscast is a feature of everyday life, the story of how each day's news is brought before its television audience is a mystery for most people who watch the news. Introductory text gives an overview of the news broadcast experience. In the succeeding six sections, the behind-the-scenes story of how the news is reported, edited, filmed, processed, and ultimately telecast is explained. Brief text gives a good, general explanation of each area of production, "News Production," "Technical Production," "On The Air," "The Weather Center," "Special Contributor," and "Wrap." The picture book format includes large colorful photographs that show extensive detail and expand on the accompanying text. The book concludes with a glossary, an index, and a short list of websites. This book would be an excellent introduction to the televised production of daily newscasts for the young reader and would be a good resource in an elementary school classroom or library.
