The media dominates our lives. We give more time to viewing, surfing, listening and reading than we do to our families and friends. It's a relationship that's built on trust - and it's a relationship currently in crisis.TV's fake phone-ins, phoney footage from royal reality shows, reporters resorting to phone-bugging to get stories - is there anything left in the media we can believe?As audiences wonder which way to turn, former TV News boss and award-winning journalist Adrian Monck turns an insider's eye on the scandals that have sucked the public's trust from the media.Does the interactive Internet world offer a more trustworthy media future, or do lies just travel quicker online? "Can You Trust The Media?" looks at the forces that have shaped the news, and those that are remaking it. Will the future be one you can believe?
The Owyhees (pronounced oh-Y-hees), are sharp and ragged peaks rising from the high desert of Oregon and Idaho. They have been the scene of mining booms and Indian battles, holdups and range wars. Mike Hanley ranches near Jordan Valley, Oregon, in the shadow of the Owyhee Mountains. With Ellis Lucia, he recounts the boisterous past and present of this wild and rugged corner of the West.
"Crunch Time" features two award-winning journalists arguing about the impact of our unthinking everyday actions on the future of our world. Every age and every generation thinks it's special, that it's on the cusp of something big. This time it's true - it's Crunch Time, and what we do now will make or break the future. The problem is that the things that we do every day - drive to work, buy toys for our kids, prepare our meals, have a cup of coffee - are conspiring to break it. Terrorism, poverty, ecological meltdown, climate change, pandemics - this is the background noise we have all learnt to live with. But what if all these things could be laid at our own feet? What if our civilisation is structurally, tragically flawed? What if we are using up tomorrow today? Our society is moving faster than ever, yet it's also increasingly fragile and filled with risk. In "Crunch Time", journalists Adrian Monck and Mike Hanley argue passionately with each other about the causes of these issues and what we can do about them. Believing that living in the 21st century means being answerable to the future, they help us to understand the critical decisions that we need to make now if we want to leave anything of value to future generations.
