This will enable you to use radio scripts towards fulfilling the main objectives of mass communication.

This Block discusses the theory of mass communication and how radio is an effective medium of mass communication. Among the different media of mass communication, Radio is rated high in view of its ready availability, cost-effectiveness and the ease with which it can be operated with simple battery cells.

Introduction

Radio as a medium of mass communication provides both education and entertainment to its listeners. In this Block we shall discuss Radio in the service of Entertainment.

Unit II discusses adaptation of novels and short stories and classics for Radio. We have included a copy of Two Indian legends from Legends of India along with the print instructional material. We have analysed a short story to show how this can be adapted for the radio.

Unit 12 looks at commentaries on sports and special events on. the Radio. It also includes a discussion on light entertainment radio programmes in English.

 

Book 4: Radio and Education

 

The use of Radio for Education has been widely acclaimed and accepted all over the world. The potential writer for Radio educational material is no longer necessarily a professional writer, but someone who has the right information to get across to learners through the medium and who has the ability to find effective ways of doing so. The instructor on Radio needs to express ideas and other educational concepts in a form that has immediate impact on the listener and will be easily understood by him.

In this Block

Unit 13 explains the role of Radio in education- how to decide on your objective and get your ideas transferred to paper.

Units 14-15 deal with Radio broadcasts for Children and School broadcasts.

Units 16-17 deal with Radio and Non-formal Education and Radio and Open learning.

All the units give you hints on better writing technique for instruction over Radio and how to choose your script for this purpose.
