The history of the radio ( слайд 1)
Radio is based on the studies of James Clerk Maxwell, who developed the mathematical theory of electromagnetic waves, and Heinrich Hertz, who devised an apparatus for generating and detecting them. Guglielmo Marconi, recognizing the possibility of using these waves for a wireless communication system, gave a demonstration (1895) of the wireless telegraph. That equipment was improved, and in 1901, Marconi succeeded in sending the letter S across the Atlantic Ocean using Morse code
Who is Popov? (слайд 2)
Alexander Stepanovich Popov (1859-1906)
was a Russian physicist who first demonstrated the practical application of electromagnetic (radio) waves, although he did not apply for a patent for his invention.
Born in the village Turinskiye Rudniki
in the Ural mountains as the son of a priest,
he became interested in natural sciences
early in his youth.
Beginning in the early 1890s he conducted experiments along the lines of Heinrich Hertz's research.
In 1894 he built his first radio receiver.
In 1920 the first commercial broadcasting station in the United States, technical improvements in the industry increased, as did radio's popularity.
In 1926 the first broadcasting network was formed. It was the golden age of radio. Radio was the least expensive form of entertainment during the Great Depression, the radio receiver became a standard household fixture, particularly in the United States. Subsequent research and countless technical improvements gave us such applications of radio as facsimile , radar, and even television. Radio programming became mostly music and news and talk shows.
In 1998 the turn of the century saw a potential rebirth for radio as mobile digital radio entered the market with a satellite-based subscription service in Europe and in the USA.
After presentation pupils answer the questions.
Uses of Radio Waves (слайд 4)
Radios that combine transmitters and receivers are now widely used for communications. Police and military forces and various businesses commonly use such radios to maintain contact with dispersed individuals or groups.
Radar (слайд 5)
It is used also for sending out signals and picking up their reflections from objects in their path.
Space exploration (слайд 6)
Long-range radio signals enable astronauts to communicate with the earth from the moon and carry information from space probes as they travel to distant planets
Radio compass (слайд 7)
It is the direction finder
Internet radio (слайд 8)
Internet radio (also web radio, net radio, streaming radio, e-radio, online radio, webcasting) is an audio service transmitted via the Internet.
Internet radio involves streaming media, presenting listeners with a continuous stream of audio that typically cannot be paused or replayed.
Internet radio services offer news, sports, talk, and various genres of music—every format that is available on traditional broadcast radio stations.
Radio nowadays. (Слайд 9)
Today radio is popular mass media.
There are many radio stations worldwide.
Any of them can be caught practically everywhere. Despite the fact that where you are.
Radio day (слайд 10)
Radio Day is a special day of the development of radio in Russia.
It takes place on May 7, the day in 1895 on which Alexander Popov successfully demonstrated his invention.
Radio Day is officially marked in Russia.
T.: You have just told me that the modern form of radio stations is the Internet radio station. Now you will listen to a part of an interview with a girl named Nicky Wilson who manages her own internet radio station. Take a paper with a task for listening. You should choose the correct answer A, B, C for each question. After listening you should value a work of your neighbour. Let’s start.
Interviewer: Nicky Wilson is fifteen years old and manages her own internet radio station.
So Nicky tell us how you first got started.
Nicky: Well, I have always been interested in music. But I could never find a radio station that played the songs people my age liked without too many advertisements in between them. So, during a long conversation with my best friend, she said it would be a good idea to start up my own station on the Net and that’s how it began.
Interviewer: It must have been really difficult.
Nicky: Yes. To tell the truth, I didn’t know what to expect. Luckily, I got a lot of help from my brother, who is a computer whiz. He was happy to design a web page for me to advertise my station. My viewers could use it to learn about the station, the times to listen in and to access my show. Next I needed to buy the right equipment to play my music and accept calls from listeners. It was quite expensive but my parents helped out. The hardest part, however, was finding out how difficult it was to use all the technology. It took a lot of practice.
Interviewer: I can imagine you must have been nervous during your first broadcast. How did you manage?
Nicky: Before the broadcast, I was extremely anxious. I had advertised the first show by putting up posters around school, so I knew a lot of people would be listening and I didn’t want to disappoint them. But, when the time came, all my friends started calling in to make request and I became perfectly calm. Because of their support, I was able to put on a great show.
Interviewer: What needs to be considered when doing a live show?
Nicky: Well, firstly, how long the programme should be. It’s easy to lose track of time when you’re busy getting calls for songs and mixing all kinds of tunes. But if you have an hour show, it should be kept tp just one hour.
Interviewer: Why is that?
Nicky: Well, my listeners make time to hear my show, so I like to stick to my programme. They might have arranged other things for later on in the day. I don’t expect them to change their plans for me. Also, if your show goes on for too long, it can become too tiring. That’s a sure way of losing listeners.
Interviewer: That’s true! What about your plans for the future? What’s next?
Nicky: Well, I want to continue my radio station but also start up a new internet talk show, where teenager’s problems can be discussed. I have plans to bring in school counselors to give my callers advice.
Narrator: Now listen again.
