Abstract [en]

This bachelor’s essay sets to create a prototype analysis model that can be used to analyse radio documentaries. The purpose is to develop a new tool to understand radio documentary storytelling from a listener’s perspective.To create the analysis model we have used Mia Lindgren’s doctoral thesis Journalism as research: Developing radio documentary theory from practice (2011) and film theorist Bill Nichols Introduction to Documentary (2010).The result, a prototype of an analysis model, is a list of questions that is to be used with the help of the essays theory chapter. In short the model looks at the aspects of the story idea, motif, scenes, sounds, narrator, music, interviews, dramaturgy and the six modes of documentary storytelling as explained by Bill Nichols.The analysis model is then tested, with aim to find ways to improve it in future research. The test takes form as two analyses of two radio documentaries, Granaten Excalibur - och den svenska vapenexporten by Måns Mosesson and The Rhino Hunter by Simon Adler.The results of the test shows that the analysis model functions well in giving insight to the storytelling of the analysed radio documentaries. Though, the test also shows that the analysis model has to be complemented with deeper explanations of dramaturgy, scenes, music and narrator. Also, the used film theory by Bill Nichols has to be tested on more radio content to determine its functionality on radio.In conclusion the research shows that the analysis model works and can be tested on more material and developed further.
