Example text

In the case of such channels as UK Gold, Bravo, Granada Plus and TNT Cartoon Network, a lot of the shows have all been made and are simply being repeated. The main function of these generic channels is to provide the platform for a library of material. There are jobs, but they are mainly in the presentation area. Some children's channels make quite a bit out of linking two programmes together - they have phone-in requests and people play small competitions between shows. Often the links for these programmes are all recorded in one day of activity in the studio, each week.

Documentaries and fact-based or educational programming and news programmes all have their place, but not usually in the peak time part of the schedules - although the rule is often broken. Documentaries, including natural history, often use a celebrity to link the programme in order to give a subject popular appeal. That puts programmes like Michael Palin's Around the World in 80 Days straight into peak time. News will sometimes move temporarily into peak time if a particular event captures the public imagination, such as the death of Princess Diana, or an international war.

The rest of the day is divided similarly to BBC Radios 1 and 2, as described earlier. m. m. when a large number of listeners are on their way home from work. Listen to most of the stations for any length of time and you can determine a 'station sound'. Some stations have this station sound written down along with programme formats and style guides for all to adhere to; this is known as house style. Often the presenters will sound very alike and their verbal references will be very similar. A lot of speech time on commercial radio is very restricted - sometimes as little as four minutes in an hour which makes it difficult for the presenter's personality to shine through1.
