Some caveats: good audio documentaries usually make lousy video. So when enhancing Listening Between the Lines’ programs:
- The narrative core must remain a listening-experience.
- Visuals must be limited in duration. Blank screens can be good, especially when multi-tasking or exploring the narrative’s subtext.
- Dramatic re-enactments and invented dialogue are not appropriate; videos should probably be limited to, for example, scene-setting pans of the place where a particular event took place.
- Hyperlinks to relevant research materials are highly recommended and encouraged.
- We welcome innovative apps and suggestions.
An example may be found on the Rosewood and “Rosewood” page. It is a video interpretation of the program’s introduction.
