For more than two generations, television has been a part of most people’s lives, and few could remember a time when it wasn’t there as a familiar, reliable source of information and entertainment. Today, viewers are accustomed to broadcasts running seamlessly with commercials following programming before more programs come on. The occasional glitch might happen here or there, including temporary blackouts due to storms, but for the most part, television runs incredibly smoothly.Of course, that wasn’t all the case. At times, pranksters or political activists hacked into satellite feeds, protestors took over studios while live and on air, and intriguing paranormal events with few good explanations have been seen. In fact, the TV has always been a place of mystery, a battleground for competing ideologies, and a source of anonymous voices. Television broadcasts have been used to support war efforts, topple governments, communicate secretly, and even attempt to communicate with the dead.Weird Television: A Collection of Interrupted Broadcasts, Paranormal Apparitions, and Other Mysteries on TV includes strange stories that will make this familiar medium seem a bit less familiar and far more interesting. You will learn about some of the world’s strangest TV stories like never before. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim D Johnston.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Unseen, written and read by Reggie Yates. From Grange Hill to Top of the Pops, Reggie Yates has been on camera nearly all of his life, but it's as a documentary filmmaker - and a pretty fearless one at that - where he has truly been making his mark, investigating everything from gun crime in Chicago to life as a refugee in Iraq. In his first book, Unseen, Reggie takes us behind the scenes on his journey from TV host to documentary storyteller. Using some of the key moments and extreme circumstances he has found himself in, Reggie examines what he has learned about the world and about himself as a person. Beginning as a brief exploration of Reggie's relationship with the camera and life growing up on screen, Unseen explores the journey Reggie has taken in the documentary world. Initially resistant to documentary making, Reggie was convinced his point of view as a young black working-class man with a history in music, children's TV and entertainment would not make his films remotely credible. Through conflict and challenges onscreen, the understanding gained from the very thing once seen as a weakness would become his strength on camera, as the eye of the everyman and voice of the audience. Unseen unpicks the stories behind the fascinating characters and situations Reggie encounters across a series of films as well as chronicling the personal growth through each testing shoot for Yates himself. 1.

In this follow-up to his first collection of essays - Shoot This One - television writer and producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach continues to overshare about his misadventures in the small screen to a degree that will make you fear for his future employment. Including Grillo-Marxuach’s Internet-breaking, no-holds-barred account of the creation of the hit show Lost, as well as the never-before-seen “mean version” of his essay “The Eleven Laws of Showrunning” - an incendiary assault on the toxic culture behind many TV series - the essays in Shoot That One offer both a tantalizing glimpse into the inner circles of the entertainment industry, as well a management lesson disguised as a juicy tell-all.With Shoot This One already on the reading list in a number of writing courses, Shoot That One digs deeper not just into the workings of TV but also popular culture as a whole. Whether he’s taking a flamethrower to the rampant bigotry in show-biz, explaining why your junior high school English teacher was wrong about how stories should end, or arguing that some films are better experienced with earplugs, Grillo-Marxuach takes no prisoners, tells it like it is, and shares what he knows with career-threatening candor and an endless curiosity about the medium and its message. 1.

Featuring brand-new stories by: Kathleen Kent, Ben Fountain, James Hime, Harry Hunsicker, Matt Bondurant, Merritt Tierce, Daniel J. Hale, Emma Rathbone, Jonathan Woods, Oscar C. Pea, Clay Reynolds, Lauren Davis, Fran Hillyer, Catherine Cuellar, David Haynes, and J. Suzanne Frank. From the introduction by David Hale Smith: My favorite line in my favorite song about Dallas goes like this: Dallas is a rich man with a death wish in his eyes / A steel and concrete soul in a warm heart and love disguise... The narrator of Jimmie Dale Gilmore's perfect tune "Dallas" is coming to town as a broke dreamer with the bright lights of the big city on his mind. He's just seen the Dallas cityscape through the window of his seat on a DC-9 at night. Is he just beginning his quest? Or is he on his way home, flying out of Love Field, reminiscing after seeing the woman who stepped on him when he was down? In a country with so many interesting cities, Dallas is often overlooked except on November 22 every year. The heartbreaking anniversary keeps coming back around in a nightmare loop, for all of us. On that day in 1963, Dallas became American noir. A permanent black scar on its history that will never be erased, no matter how many happy business stories and hit television shows arise from here. In a stark ongoing counterweight to the JFK tragedy are those two iterations of the TV show. Dallas is not a TV show. It's a real city... For the past 40 years, my capacity to be surprised by it has not diminished one bit. I hope the stories in this collection will surprise you too. 1. Language: English.

As seen on the Emmy Award-winning TV show - Leah Remini - Scientology & the AftermathNominated by Foreword Magazine as 2009 Book of the Year Award Finalist Marc Headley provides an insider's view of life as a member of Scientology's "Sea Organization". Marc worked at Scientology's secret desert compound, which houses all Scientology management, for 15 years. The 500-acre property is located deep in the California desert. The local townspeople were told lectures and films were made there. But is that all that was happening? It is the location of a multi-million-dollar home for L. Ron Hubbard, built two decades after his death. It is the home of Scientology's current leader, David Miscavige. So what really happens at the Int Base? Are the stories on the Internet true? How does Scientology conduct management of its day-to-day operations? Could stories of armed guards, weapons, staff beatings, and razor-wire fences be true? If so, how could a facility like this exist in modern-day America? Hundreds of staff tried to escape over the years. Some succeeded but were never seen or heard of again; most failed. Why were people kept here? What really went on at the headquarters of Scientology? This is the story of what happened behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology. "...the Scientology cult, is I guarantee you, a thousand times more bizarre than you could have ever imagined." (The John & Ken Show, KFI AM 640) "Headley's book also provides stunning material that has rarely been collected in one place...a damning account of life working for Scientology leader David Miscavige at the secretive desert base...." (Tony Ortega, The Village Voice) "Marc Headley, a former insider at the church, has written a tell-all book, called Blown for Good, about his 15 years of work with Scientology. And folks...you can't handle the truth...." (The Frisky) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marc Headley. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/124713/bk_acx0_124713_sample.mp3.
