Social Interactions in 'Face To Face'

The DVD series “Face to Face” was originally performed by BBC television from 1959 to 1962. The show was presented by a former politician John Freeman. Indeed, the style of John Freeman of conducting the interviews was so strange and unique that it got a number of interviewees off guard. Therefore, this method provided a gateway for a rigorous social interaction (BBCShop, n.d.).

The show gave much to the world in the form of exposing and understanding the social beliefs and cultures of different types of people. John Freeman, a politician himself, was an expert in identifying various trending social issues in every individual. His style was presented to get answers that many people feared to ask. The series “Face to Face” gave an opportunity for the viewers to get to know various ideas and thoughts from each of the individual presented. Ideologically, the argumentative, narrative and reporting of various issues by both Freeman and interviewees provided an interactive discourse that proved to be successful (Schu%u0308pbach, 2005). 

An example is the interview with the King of Jordan, King Hussein.  John Freeman sought to know about the Jordan’s social and economic culture in order to determine various controversial issues affecting Muslim society. Hence, we can find out about one or two social issues from the series. First of all, the series was instrumental in presenting social leaders and hear their ideologies on various social issues they represent. Hence, people were able to understand these individuals much better, thereby promoting individual social understanding. Moreover, the media is a good platform of sending clear social messages and ideologies; thereby these individuals would get a chance to sell their ideas to a large number of people enhancing social interactions (Schu%u0308pbach, 2005). 

The series also gave the public a chance to know the values and characters of the leaders who represented them. Furthermore, it gave an opportunity to define the kind of individuals who represent various social, economic and political systems and to empower future interactions with these leaders.
