TV Launches 24-Hour News with CNN: 4D An Augmented Reading Experience

On-point historical photographs combined with strong narration bring the story of CNN to life. Kids will learn how Ted Turner developed the idea of a 24/7 news network, which was unheard of at the time, as the Big Three networks devoted only half an hour a day to news, and cable was in its infancy. CNN changed the way news was delivered, and gave rise to the 24-hour news cycle on the internet as well as TV. Accompanying video will show readers CNN's early news coverage as well as current debates with the president.

Booklist - Angela Leeper

"STARRED REVIEW! Television has played a significant role in modern history, and these volumes in the Captured Television History 4D series target key events shaped by television coverage. Each title sets the scene with an attention-grabbing, in-the-moment narrative of a historic event and continues with a chronological overview that gives attention to television’s impact on viewers and public perception. . . .The larger size of the books allows for period photographs, sidebars, a visual time line, and other back matter. This series wraps history, technology, and media literacy into a fine package." - Booklist
