The design and scripting of 'unscripted' talk: liveness versus control in a TV broadcast interview

Abstract [en]

By combining ethnographic methods with textual analysis, this article sets out to answer the question how a scripted event on live television is infused with a sense of ‘liveness’ in order to balance the requirements of control and spontaneity in a broadcast interview. The management of this seemingly paradoxical desire is, in this analysis, linked to the ways in which professionals work at maintaining the identity of public service while competing on a commercial media market. In relation to this general inquiry, the script’s status in the production of a broadcast interview will also be analyzed, an area which is somewhat of a blind spot in media research. In doing so, the conventional division between scripted and unscripted broadcast talk (Scannell 2003) is called into question.
