My media week 08/02/09

Joe Moran has this article in The Guardian about our inability to accept that in Winter it gets cold. It’s time to chill out.

 

The Bottom Line is back on BBC Radio 4. This podcast looks at the failed promise of mobile working and whether the economic crisis will produce a permanent shift in attitudes towards government intervention in the world of business.

 

As the Mac celebrates its 25th birthday, one of Apple’s co-founders, one of the development team, and a computer historian discuss its creation and legacy. Go here.

 

The Observer  has an article about Hollywood is dumbing down its female leads. How Hollywood made its heroines weight-obsessed and man mad.

 

Forum – A World of Ideas is one my favourites from the BBC World Service. It is presented by Bridget Kendall, who hosts three prominent international thinkers debating big ideas. This week’s programme features psychoanalyst Susie Orbach explaining the dangers of re-engineering our bodies, Candian historian Margaret MacMillan worrying about modern reverence for history, and novelist Tom Perrotta investigatng suburban American battles over sex education and religion.
