Overview

Worlds in Common? examines the newly emerging forms of language used in satellite television programmes, exploring a wide range of genres including twenty-four hour news broadcasting, culture channels, talk shows, local TV and European news.
Focusing on the experiences of British and German viewers, the authors discuss these new forms of communication brought about by the technological and economic upheavals in Europe in the late 1990s.
This interaction between media theories and media discourses, makes the book highly relevant for researchers in media and cultural studies as well as linguistics, and provides an important and innovatory link between these different approaches.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines newly emerging forms of communication in European television, and extends current debates about the future of a new multi-channel media environment no longer confined within national boundaries. Detailed case studies taken from a range of television genres, such as 24-hour news broadcasting, shopping channels, and talk shows, are analyzed and connected to current debates on the importance of television's mediation of space and time, questions of local and global identity, the impact of US talk shows within a European context, and satellite channel audiences.
