Language used was strong for it's time, seen as really mild for today though., Aired on ITV
Almost more realistic from young person today, wouldn't stay negative portrayal., Rowdy bunch, not nasty, but like to wind up older people, Don't dislike any of the characters, always a sense of fun. No violence or crimes.
Stereotypical characters: general outcasts next to posh, smart schools/students. -the slow 'less intelligent' one -the leader -the flirty girl -the funny one etc...
Clothing considered risky for era, short skirts makeup hair, smoking drinking, Contrast with older characters like the headteacher, Emphasises generation difference
None of the characters are evil, yet social outcasts, Characters with right personality mix to create loveable characters
Characters shown trying to do the 'cool' things, like drinking but always goes wrong, no glamour or over the the topness
Focuses on their complicated relationships with adults, to highlight the difference in them.
Very successful both adults and youth like it
deals with issues which are real but funny
Tv channel pretty much dedicated for 'youth'. think skins, misifts etc...
Negative for the era, but almost laughable by todays standards, shows difference in considered 'bad' youth, from then to now.
Experimenting with personality and identity, shows him becoming an adult similar issues with today, partying, sex, and petty crimes, but nowhere near as extreme.
Blame isn't based upon parents, or adults like many todays programmes, comes from decent family, just his fault in a sense. Influenced by other character Liz who is free and does what she wants, wants to break free like her, but too scared.
Would almost sway more toward more positive portrayal compared to today's films, no demonisation of youth involved.
Broken homes, blame is placed on youths but more on parents and other figures such as police. Main youth had bad upbringing mum doesn't care, dad is in prison, another is being sexually abused by his uncle., Not a single good youth in the entire film., No sympathy for youths though, personality less, they are they to be the enemy, scare the audience, well the older members of the audience.
dingy locations, underpasses accents, extreme language clothing one big stereotype with no depthdruggies, hoodies, alcohol, gun crime
Slut, chav, sportsman, funny one, slightly mental one etc..., Common group of teen characters, think first season skins.
"it proclaims you shall conform, with no instruction...replaced consciousness", 1991
Almost saying we have become brainwashed by the media, no choices are our own, no longer independent thinkers, they make we consume
"Popular culture is made by the people not produced by the culture industry", 1989
The power of a products success is ours, we still think and decide what we like, what to watch, how we feel etc.. opposite of Adorno
Interpellation we shape ourselves through the media we like and therefore subconsciously agree with it., 1971
Decoding and encoding, we take what we want from the media, and decide out own opinions on it, whether its what the creator intended or not.
"not a second mirror...new kinds of subjects"
Not a realistic representation of real life, need to read more about hall still!
Feminist, women only placed in media for male gaze.
"determining male gaze projects its fantasy onto female figure, 1975
Representations of the different sexes, reflect real life or not?
"average teenager can create 3 online identities before breakfast", 2007
says we are each our in individual person, no one is 100 % the same, however we use major parts of our identity to craft relationships, social groups, and present ourselves to people. e.g the type of music people like tends to group them up.
