Since the birth of mass communications in the early 20th century, its impact has been transformational; giving birth to a range of industries from modern day journalism to PR and advertising. The relationship between the ‘communications’ siblings has been a close one, even blurred at times.
On this month’s LBB on NTS, we take a closer look at these symbiotic relationships. We speak to Filmmaker Jean-Philippe Tremblay about his documentary feature film Shadows of Liberty, which reveals the extraordinary truth behind the news media: censorship, cover-ups and corporate control.
D&AD’s New Blood senior programme manager Kati Russell will also be giving us the downlow on all things advertising and the recently released D&AD’s New Blood Award 2014 briefs.
LBB on NTS 1-2pm (GMT). Saturday 23 November, 2013.
