Try two contrasting extracts. Either two radio stations or the same station at different times and for different audiences. For example, find a local commercial or pirate station and compare it with Radio 2 or 4. Choose similar types of show, so that the main variables are audience and producer. Or, look at the language used on a breakfast show, a news broadcast and a phone-in on the same station. Radio advertising can also yield some interesting material since it has to rely more strongly on language than the television equivalent.

Look for differences in formality, lexis etc. How do the various people address each other? How do the speakers represent themselves? Is there a particular speech pattern followed? It's difficult to give more specific advice until you have chosen your material.

Agree with Lit teacher. Another suggestion would be to contrast the language used between local and national radio as you are likely to see dialectical issues.

I have decided on this topic after having a conversation with a teacher at my school who used to work for the English exam board. My original idea was to do something on Scott Mills language and he has helped me to come to a title as "How does Scott Mills use language to communicate successfully with his audience?"

Thanks for all the suggestions though :] !! Appreciate it.

Any more suggestions on how to make this title and investigation even better would be great, and would be a great addition to what I already have!!
