NEWS, news programme, news show, or newscast is a regularly scheduled radio or television program
that reports current events. News is typically reported in a series of individual stories that are presented
by one or more anchors. A news program can include live or recorded interviews by field reporters,
expert opinions, opinion poll results, and occasional editorial content.
PUBLICISTIC is characterized by coherent and logical syntactical structure, with an expanded system of
connectives and careful paragraphing. Its emotional appeal is achieved by the use of words with the
emotive meaning but the stylistic devices are not fresh or genuine.
PUBLICISTIC-DOCUMENTARY/ is ojective and subjective. Blend of the rigorous logical reasoning,
reflecting the objective state of things, and a strong subjectivity reflecting the author's personal feelings
and emotions towards the discussed subject.

memoirs/, political propaganda
EDUCATIONAL/ An educational program is a program written by the institution or ministry of education
which determines the learning progress of each subject in all the stages of formal education.

focuses on recent scientific developments, this is more broad-ranging. It may be written by professional
science journalists or by scientists themselves.
DRAMATIC PROGRAM is a genre of narrative fiction (or semi-fiction) intended to be more serious than
humorous in tone.[1] Drama of this kind is usually qualified with additional terms that specify its
particular subgenre, such as "police crime drama", "political drama", "legal drama", "historical drama",
"domestic drama", "teen drama" or "comedy-drama". These terms tend to indicate a particular setting
or subject-matter, or else they qualify the otherwise serious tone of a drama with elements that
encourage a broader range of moods.
ENTARTEINING Storytelling, music, drama, dance, and different kinds of performance
An important aspect of entertainment is the audience, which turns a private recreation or leisure
activity into entertainment. The audience may have a passive role, as in the case of persons watching a
play, opera, television show, or film; or the audience role may be active, as in the case of games, where
the participant/audience roles may be routinely reversed. Entertainment can be public or private
MUSICAL Programs may be influenced by the available ensemble of instruments, by performer ability or
skill, by theme (historical, programmatic, or technical), by musical concerns (such as form), or by
allowable time.
MUSIC-DRAMATIC combines songs, spoken dialogue, acting and dance. The story and emotional
content of a musical – humor, pathos, love, anger – are communicated through words, music,
movement and technical aspects of the entertainment as an integrated whole.
