    This Is What I Look Like
    Theresa Talbot - Paperback - Strident
    Theresa Talbot - 'TT' to many of her fellow BBC presenters and hundreds of thousands of listeners - is familiar to many as one of the main voices behind BBC Radio Scotland's Traffic & Travel output and as the host of the BBC's 'Beechgrove Potting Shed'. Yet few people know what she looks like. And even fewer know how she's ended up where she is. Even she's unsure! In this voyage of self-discovery, TT entertains us with a life-story many will relate to: of trying numerous occupations in the 1980s and 1990s (in her case from bank clerk to Pepsi Challenge girl); of recognising the need to self-educate; and of eavesdropping on a No.66 bus - and thus ending up at the BBC and Radio Clyde via AA Roadwatch.
  • Cover scan of Special Affects
    Special Affects: Cinema, Animation And The Translation Of Consumer Care
    Eric S. Jenkins - Hardback - Edinburgh University Press
    The emergence of Disney animation and classical Hollywood cinema enables new modes of perception that create 'special' sensations of wonder, astonishment, marvel and the fantastic. Such affections subsequently become mined by consumer industries for profit, thereby explaining the connection between media and consumerism that today seems inherent to the culture industry. Such modes and their affections are also translated into ideology, as American culture seeks to make sense of the sociocultural changes accompanying these new media, particularly as specific versions of American Dream narratives. 'Special Affects' is the first extended exploration of the connection between media and consumerism, and the first book to extensively apply Deleuzian film theory to animation.
