Overview

This work brings together writings on television published in Quarterly Review of Film and Video, from essays by Nick Browne and Beverle Houston to the latest historical and critical research. It considers television's economics, technologies, forms and audiences from a cultural perspective that links history, theory and criticism. The authors address several key issues: the formative period in American television history; the relation between television's political economy and its cultural forms; gender and melodrama; and new technologies such as video games and camcorders. Originally published in 1993.

Editorial Reviews

Mide Budd
This is cutting edge' historical and critical research. The field needs basic and defining scholarship, and this volume will make a significant contribution to that prior project. There is really nothing quite like this book, which both advances and consolidates knowledge about television.
Clay Steinman
This is the most stimulating collection of articles on television that I have ever seen. It brings together classic historical work from major authors and new material that is wide-ranging, first-rate and conversant with current debates. With this book, we are lucky to have in easy reach so much that is so rich.
