Today In Communication History
On this date in 1944, it was the last day on which the German television studios in Paris were in use. As later reported after the Allied liberation, the site included four studios: one for a six-camera set-up and seating for 250, another about 130 ft x 60 ft an 25 ft high and two smaller ones of about 30 ft x 15 ft with a swimming pool in the center. All equipment was of German manufacture, made by Fernseh A. G. The Germans removed the cameras but left behind the film apparatus, the week before the liberation of the city. The Germans had, of course, smashed the Eiffel Tower transmitter before they left. CBS correspondent, Charles Collingwood, was able to fill in some of the extraordinarily interesting details. He made a visit to the laboratories at Montrouge of the Compagnie des Compteurs, who had formed the subsidiary Compagnie Francaise de Television. There he found Rene Barthelemy, one of the early pioneers in France, in charge of all technical work. Collingwood, in a confidential written report to his New York office, described demonstrations he had seen. One of them-not of great importance-was of 450-line television projected on to a screen four feet by six, but the other was of 1050-line definition which from a distance of eight feet was “comparable” with the cinema. Barthelemy had apparently been working on 1,000-line television since 1940, and since hen the company had spent over ten million francs in research. Of note, Edward R. Murrow had included mention of television in his news report on November 4, 1944.
In 1900, the term ‘television‘ is coined by Constantin Perskyi at the International Electricity Congress, part of the 1900 Paris Exhibition.

Social Media News
Social Media Stars Warned Over Undeclared Paid-for Ads
In an article on BBC by Kevin Rawlinson, Dozens of celebrities have been warned about endorsing products on social media without declaring they had been paid to do so, the government has said. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) also warned the firms paying them and forced the intermediary, Social Chain, to undertake to stop.
But the CMA insisted on keeping the names of the public figures and the companies secret.
Transparency Campaigners Said The Names Should Be Released
A CMA investigation found that Social Chain arranged for “widely followed social media personalities” to promote films, games, takeaway and dating apps, without declaring that the content was paid-for advertising. They posted the adverts on Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, the government body said. It added that Social Chain organised 19 marketing campaigns featuring undisclosed advertising in a four-month period last year. The posts appeared on social media accounts with a “combined reach of around four million followers” and some of the campaigns “trended on Twitter, which may have increased their readership further”.
Social Chain also used its own social media accounts. The CMA wrote to 43 celebrities and 15 businesses to “warn them that arranging or publishing advertising that is not clearly labelled may result in them breaching consumer protection law”. On Thursday, it refused to name any of them, saying that it preferred to concentrate on the marketing company.
“It is important that when companies are caught breaking the rules, either in letter or in spirit, that the names of those companies, and any others involved in the offence, are made public,” Peter Van Veen of Transparency International UK said. He told the BBC: “Only through disclosing such information will any sanctions act as a future deterrent for those companies and others.”
According to Daniel Knapp, an advertising researcher at the analyst firm IHS, social media advertising has become more important in recent years as consumers tire of traditional advertising methods. They are “bombarded” by advertising and see as many as 1,000 ads per day and many people no longer trust “interruptive advertising”, such as television ad slots, he said.
“So, they are looking for other ways. Social media is where young and highly influenceable people congregate and the stars have bigger followings than some brands. They are also very close to the consumers.” But Mr Knapp added that undeclared advertising was bad for the marketing industry in the long term because it risked eroding trust. “Social media personalities can have an important influence on people’s views, especially young people. It is therefore crucial that when people decide what to buy, they should not be misled by adverts on social media that read like independent opinions,” said Nisha Arora, of the CMA.
The CMA also announced that it had received an undertaking from the clothing retailers Wool Overs, which it said had “cherry-picked” more favourable customer reviews for publication on its website. The firm agreed to publish “all genuine, relevant and lawful customer reviews on its website” in future and not to “suppress unfavourable reviews”, the CMA said. Wool Overs said it had undergone a change of ownership and had begun working on a change in its practices when the CMA investigation was opened. Social Change told the BBC it had been working with the CMA for several months “to ensure we fully comply with the ever-changing advertising regulations.”
Thomas Gibson Fired From ‘Criminal Minds’
According to Entertainment Tonight and other news sources, Thomas Gibson, who was recently suspended for kicking a writer on the set of Criminal Minds, has been fired from the CBS drama. The producers of the long-running series on CBS announced Friday that the 54-year-old actor, who’s played Aaron Hotchner on the drama since it launched in 2005, will not return to the show when it returns for its 12th season on Sept. 28. “Thomas Gibson has been dismissed from Criminal Minds,” according to a statement from ABC Studios and CBS Studios. “Creative details for how the character’s exit will be addressed in the show will be announced at a later date.”
News of the altercation, which was confirmed by Gibson’s spokeswoman, broke earlier this week. A source close to Gibson said the actor “instinctively” booted a writer in the shin after an argument over the show’s creative direction escalated. Gibson’s spokeswoman released this statement on behalf of the actor: “There were creative differences on the set and a disagreement. I regret that it occurred. We all want to work together as a team to make the best show possible. We always have and we always will.”
The decision to oust Gibson comes at time when Criminal Minds is attempting to chart a new course now that Shemar Moore has left the show. In the spring, Moore announced he was leaving the drama that plucked him from a CBS soap opera and turned him into an international star. Since he’s active on social media, he refers to his female fans as “baby girls”, there is a predictable amount of concern that the Criminal Minds ratings could take a hit. At the end of season 11, Criminal Minds was TV’s 17th most popular show among viewers (12.31 million) and was CBS’s seventh most-watched show.
Sean Hanish’s Independent Film ‘Sister Cities’ Lands at Lifetime
Per Cynthia Littleton in Variety (080916) Lifetime Network has picked up TV rights to the indie film ‘Sister Cities‘, starring Jacki Weaver, Stana Katic, Jess Weixler, Michelle Trachtenberg and Troian Bellisario. The drama tells the story of four estranged sisters who are brought together by their mother’s death. It’s set to bow on the cabler Sept. 17. Amy Smart, Alfred Molina and Tom Everett Scott also star.
The project comes from director-producer Sean Hanish and the same team that produced the Emmy-nominated ‘Return to Zero‘, which aired on Lifetime in 2014. “Our goal with ‘Sister Cities’ has always been to get the film in front of as many people as possible, and Lifetime has proved to be the preeminent network to reach viewers who love films with strong female characters and performances,” said director-producer Sean Hanish. “After the overwhelming success of ‘Return to Zero’ on Lifetime, we’re thrilled to partner with the `Fempire’ a second time with ‘Sister Cities.’ ”
Colette Freedman wrote the script, which was based on her play. “Sister Cities” hails from Hanish’s Cannonball Productions and was produced by Hanish, Paul Jaconi-Biery and Eleonore Dailly. Kelly Kahl and Molina are executive producers.
On the heels of a successful sold-out premiere at Michael Moore’s Traverse City Film Festival, Lifetime acquired the worldwide broadcast rights for ‘Sister Cities‘.
