  • A hit british sitcom from the 1990s
  • It is about two flat mates, Richie Richard and Eddie Hitler, who are on the doll and at the bottom of the social food chain. They love to hate each other and hate to like each other and can’t admit that they are sort of friends.
  • Written by and staring Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson
  • Years broadcasted on = 1991, 1992, 1995
  • Broadcasted on the BBC network
  • The BBC is meant to be owned by the public as it’s for the public. It’s meant to have been like that since 1927 but since recent revelations and news headlines about strikes showing them to be biased towards a government party in the last few months or so, people are beginning to question if they are a non biased public organisation. This is because, the events and their threats cause people think that there is undercover deals with politically biased bosses or government officials them selves that control what we watch and how they base information as well as persuading you who to like and hate as well as controlling what you can know and find out.
  • BBC makes it’s money from the tv licence and sponsors of companies within a show as well as selling dvds and boxsets (and in the old days vhs sets) of their shows
  • Now broadcasted on Dave and UKTV Gold, freeview channel. They are controlled by Virgin media who has a subscription net work system but have channels brought from sky network

Movie/ Feel the noise

Feel the noise is a drama written by  Albert leon, directed by Alejandro Chromski and produced by Jenifer lopez.


After a run-in with local thugs, aspiring Harlem Afro-Puerto Rican rapper Rob (Omarion) flees to Puerto Rico and a Puerto Rican father  he never knew, and finds his salvation in Reggaeton, a spicy blend of hip-hop, reggae and Latin beats. Puerto Rico the spiritual home of Reggaeton, inspires Rob and his younger half-brother Javi (Victor Rasuk) to pursue their dream of becoming Reggaeton stars. Together with a dancer named C.C., they learn what it means to stay true to themselves and each other, while overcoming obstacles in love, greed and pride, all culminating in an explosive performance at New York’s Puerto Rican Day Parade.

The name of the company that distributed the movie is known as tristar, a company in the USA originally owned by sony pictures. Tristar was founded in 1982 as Nova pictures. It is a major company because it is owned by one of the worlds biggest companies. the list of companies owned by sony are: Columbia picture,Columbia tristar and sony pictures classic.

Sony Contains a libary that includes more than 35,000 episodes of more than 270 television series and 22,000 game show episodes under the Columbia TriStar Television brand, and the television rights to the  Embassy Pictures library ( including the graduate and The lion winter and also the owner of the television division “Embassy Television”–among most recent notable shows in this library are Seinfeld, King of Queens, Days of our lives and The Young and the Restless.

Sony makes its money by producing a variety of different media entertainments such as motion pictures, television production, television syndication, online games, mobile entertainment, video on demand and digital distribution. By doing all this,  it affects all what they do by giving them a wide range of audience and a massive media market. This will hopefully help by attracting more audience to their products online and on the television.

Hopefully the person that oversees all what they do will be the audience as they will be able to jusde whether they like it or not and if they do, they will have to decide whether to buy it or not.  Hopefully, the control the audience have will be the only source of them making money, so the effect of the audience is very effective.
