Narrative in the media industry is the way events in stories are put together to be presented to an audience. Narrative is about theconstruction of the story for example, the way it has been put together, not the story itself. A use of narrative is a voice overduring a theatre showing or film.Wikipedia
 
A narrative is a constructive format (as a work of speech, writing,song, film, television, video games, photography or theatre) that describes asequence of non-fictional or fictional events. The word derives from the Latin verbnarrare, "to tell", and is related to the adjective gnarus, "knowing" or "
skilled.”

Tzvetan Todorov is a Franco-Bulgarian philosopher. Hehas lived in France since 1963 with his wife NancyHuston and their two children, writing books and essaysabout literary theory, thought history and culture theory.Russian theorist Todorov, suggests that all narrativesfollow a three part structure. They begin withequilibrium, where everything is balanced, progress assomething comes along to disrupt that equilibrium, andfinally reach a resolution, when equilibrium is restored.Equilibrium
Disequilibrium
Equilibrium. Thissimple formula can be applied to virtually all narratives -it is a more formal way of thinking about the beginning,middle and end, and it takes into account Aristotle'stheory that all drama is conflict ie there is adisequilibrium at the heart of every narrative.
