·A Preliminary Discussion of the Innovative Practices in the Compilation of the Second-round Chronicles
By Shen Songping
Abstract: Different from the first round, the second round of chronicle compilation in NewChina is enhanced, regulated and improved on the basis of the first round. They are improved in terms of genres, table structures, etc. For example, adjacent chapters are more coherent thanks to skills in genres; new genres like “Special Features” are added and “Economic Overview” is removed; special discourses on reform and opening up, institutional reform, and private economy (non-public sector) are added and there are more contents for culture to correct theproblem of disproportion between economic and cultural categories. However, as most of the compilers in the second round are green hands who haven’t learned much from the first round, they often fall into the illusion of illusive innovation, blind innovation and negative innovation during their innovative practices.

·Imaginations of Positive Figures and the Shackles of Political Criteria: Early Radio Figures in Radio and TV Chronicles
By Liu Shufeng
Abstract: Although the first round of chronicle compilation in NewChina has been mostly completed, records of the Republic of China in many radio and TV chronicles are insufficient. It’s especially so in terms of early radio figures. In the radio and TV chronicles of the first round, “too few figures were mentioned” and “too fewof them were from the official or private radio stations of the Kuomintang,” and “the figures were also recorded in a rather monotonous style.”Those problems were due to people’s belief that only “politically correct and positive figures” could be compiled into the chronicles. As a result, many early figures that truly contributed to the development of China’s radio industry were not recorded appropriately. In the new round of chronicle compilation, compilers should emancipate their minds, make remedies as soon as possible, and record the early figures that contributed to China’s radio industryin various ways.
Keywords: Radio and TV chronicles, figures, positive figures, political criteria
