Pop Idol and Big Brother

Successful TV formats like Big Brother, Pop Idol, X-Factor and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire are sold and broadcast all round the world, netting their creators billions of pounds. But how can you protect such a valuable asset? And are too many copycat versions saturating the market and crushing original ideas? Evan Davis finds out from those at the top of the lucrative global industry of TV formats.

The On Point Interlude Music Titles You’ve Always Wanted To Know (But Were Too Afraid To Ask)

[Watch on YouTube]

If there’s one email we get almost every week from our listeners here at On Point, it’s the email that riffs on the theme of “what music did you play during the XX break of that show?!?” Sometimes we (meaning your digital producer, Nick Andersen) don’t know the answer, and the result is a sad reply that we can’t solve your problems.

We have a wide, weird variety of music to play out of into our station breaks — ~ 19 minutes past and ~ 38 minutes past the hour — and those songs draw plenty of inquiries. Sometimes, those songs are part of the show — when we do a music show, for example, or play out of a Friday Week in the News segment with songs from the Beatles’ first performance in the United States. But in the regular occasions when the music we play is oddly familiar, we realize you might have a desire to know what that song really is.

Our ever-watchful audio engineer, Jim Ross, was kind enough to provide us with a partial but common list of the songs and musical cues we turn to on a regular basis. (We’ll update this list as it changes.)

Afro Celt Sound System “Deep Channel” Ocean Colour Scene “The Riverboat Song” Ocean Colour Scene “You’ve Got It Bad” Daft Punk “Short Circuit” Boards Of Canada “Chromakey Dreamcoat” Underworld “8 Ball” Daft Punk “Aerodynamic” Afro Celt Sound System “North 2″ Badly Drawn Boy “Delta” (Little Boy Blues) Energy 52 “Café del Mar” (deadmau5 Remix) Yo La Tengo “Farewell Adventureland” FC Kahuna “Hayling” Zero 7 “Give It Away” U2 “Moment of Surrender” The Album Leaf “Red Eye” The Album Leaf “Shine” The Crystal Method “Vapor Trail” Zero 7 “In The Waiting Line”

Show 425: The Beatles “Tune In”and Bruce Springsteen Review

Music News With the release of Nielsen's SoundScan year-end sales figures for 2013, Robin Thicke's Blurred Lines has officially been crowned the top-selling single of the year with 6.5 million units. Hot on Thicke's heels were Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' Thrift Shop and Imagine Dragons' Radioactive with 6.15 million and 5.5 million respectively. Turning to albums, Justin Timberlake claimed the top spot with 2.43 million copies of The 20/20 Experience sold. Though, Jim and Greg ] note that the album's numbers happen to be the lowest sales for a #1 record in Nielsen history. The report also revealed other interesting trends in the music industry. Vinyl record enthusiasts continued to show the love for LPs in 2013 with sales up 33% over the year before. People loved streaming their music, as well, but digital sales were down 6%. This has Jim and Greg wondering: is the stream going to kill the download? Speaking of death and downloads… Last week, Jim and Greg reported the loss of pioneering country rocker Phil Everly. Apparently they weren‘t the only ones mourning. In the week after Phil’s passing, fans downloaded 18,000 Everly Brothers songs, a whopping 696% increase from the previous week. Dying, it turns out, can be a great career move. Coachella Music Festival has released its full 2014 lineup. In addition to top headliners Arcade Fire, Muse, and OutKast (who are reuniting for the first time since 2007), the desert super-show will feature Girl Talk, Lana Del Rey, Motörhead, Lorde, plus two bonus reunions: The Replacements and Neutral Milk Hotel. In other live music news, the NFL has beefed up its plans for the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show. Just in case main act Bruno Mars wasn‘t enough to satisfy America’s burning need for overhyped pop spectacle, the Red Hot Chili Peppers will be joining him onstage. What a combination, Greg laments. If the Nielsen numbers were any sign, streaming music is here to stay. And now another big player is hoping to break into that (already crowded) market: Beats Music. Spearheaded by Dr. Dre, Trent Reznor, and record exec Jimmy Iovine, the new streaming service aims to offer a more curated listening experience than its competitors. Rather than using algorithms to help users find music, Beats will rely on experts from Pitchfork, Rolling Stone—and your esteemed Sound Opinions hosts! But Jim and Greg wanted to know how the service compensates artists and labels, something for which Spotify and Pandora have taken flak. CEO Ian Rogers explains that because Beats Music won‘t be available for free, the company will pay extra for each song streamed. With the majority of every subscription fee going toward giving rights holders their fair share, Rogers says that what’s good for Beats Music is good for the industry.

My War, My Playlist - BBC World Service - The Documentary

y War, My Playlist Duration: 55 minutes First broadcast: Saturday 08 February 2014 In October 2001 Steve Jobs took to the podium to launch his latest innovation – the ipod. Thousands of miles away the war in Afghanistan was just beginning. In this programme we will hear how the MP3 player can now be found in nearly every soldier's kit bag. What role does music play in the lives of soldiers today? As British soldiers prepare for their first war zone posting, building a playlist takes on a real sense of importance for those both excited and anxious about their first tour of duty. What will be the right music to listen to when they are in Helmand? Soldiers stationed at Camp Bastion describe their music as an essential part of their lives. It helps to drown out the constant hum of activity around camp. It gives an adrenalin kick to long, dreary journeys, and helps everybody to relax in their free time. Music can rapidly become a prop, helping those serving to deal with the difficult and potentially-traumatic reality of life serving in Afghanistan. What happens when those troops arrive home? Years after seeing active duty in a warzone, what place do those playlists have in their lives? Do they offer comfort, or rake up difficult and dangerous memories? My War, My Playlist weaves the music soundtracks of Helmand with soldiers' stories of operations. On the face of it, the playlist seems irrelevant, just a selection of favourite songs lying at the bottom of a kit bag. This programme shows that within these track choices, lies an almost endless list of associations, memories and emotions.
