2001-2003; ‘Back to the future’: Reporting of the future in broadcast news programmes. Leverhulme Trust (Ref: F/00407B; £66,552). In cooperation with Adam Jaworski, Cardiff University.
The project was founded on such a good idea. We wanted to challenge the dominant research of news as texts report events that already happened. In the past tense. We focused on the news reporting what will happen. In the future tense.
