Abstract

Celebrations surrounding Israel’s Sixtieth Anniversary were held 8 May 2008 and were attended by heads of state and government officials from all over the world. It was reported widely in many countries and was marked by a two-day national holiday with memorial services, military displays, and concerts. This paper uses these events as a case study to analyse the cultural shaping of foreign conflict television coverage and compares the foreign news reports of Vremya – the flagship evening news provider of Russia’s Channel 1 – with that of two other European broadcasters from France and the UK, which are obliged to adhere to strict guidelines. The case study seeks to demonstrate how the Russian state-aligned news provider can promote its home country, whilst negotiating the complex combination of the influential Russian-speaking diaspora in Israel and Russia’s multi-layered cross-cultural connections. The paper also discusses how varying constraints imposed by broadcasting regulations can result in differing portrayals of the same event.
