Abstract [en]

This essay aims to analyse the form of two radio documentary shows and compare them to, what I mean are a traditional, Swedish radio documentary form. The radio shows are Radiolab distributedby National Public Radio and WNYC, Övernaturligt (supernatural) produced by TredjeStatsmakten Media AB and P3 Dokumentär (P3 Documentary) distributed by Sveriges Radio. Alarge part of the essay is dedicated to develop a method to analyse form in specific radio shows. Mymethod consists of two parts:1. A defining of sounds in a spreadsheet that map out the different sound elements over time.2. An analysis of the radio documentaries using the spreadsheet, text-analytic tools, rhetoric toolsand an holistic view of how different stories connect.My essay shows how these two radio documentary shows use so called layers and the changing ofroles between the presenter and the reporter to replicate a live show in closeness to the audience andin turn, how this may affect the presentation of their journalistic content. I also show how theseradio shows use illustrative and side stories to build up the main story of the show.
