If you’ve ever wanted to design the front cover of Radio Times, here’s your chance! This week we are launching a competition to design our front cover to celebrate the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on 19th May. You can use any colour, material or technique you like; you can draw, paint or create your entry on your computer! Your design should be eye-catching, imaginative and show what the wedding means to you. You must be 12 years old or younger to enter the competition.
Hurrah! The cameras are returning to New Broadcasting House once again for a second series of BBC2’s mockumentary W1A. Ian Fletcher (played by Hugh Bonneville) returns as the BBC’s Head of Values at a time when the 2016 Charter Renewal is inching ever closer.
Actor Michael Shannon watched The Shape of Water, a film in which he played a main character, win the Best Picture Oscar on a muted TV in a dive bar. Instead of attending the 90th Academy Awards with co-star Sally Hawkins and director Guillermo del Toro, the actor – who has previously been nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Oscar twice – viewed the ceremony with the aid of subtitles in the Old Town Ale House, Chicago. And the place has a very different vibe from the Oscars’ red carpet.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
