This animation consists of two principle sections.
Phase 1 provides a world view of all the actors in relation to media attention, depicting when they entered and exited the controversy. Actors are linked to concerns by lines of varying thickness, with the thicker lines signifying a stronger connect as defined by media attention in the UK press. Actors are positioned closest to the concerns with which they are most connected.
Phase 2 contains four reconfigurations of the controversy space to illustrate how the individual concerns are weighted with respect to the actors. On each re-configuration a concern becomes the centre of attention and the actors are re-positioned and re-sized in relation to the degree of media presence they have about the given concern. The links below the menu bar provide further details on the primary actors.
