Overview

Here's an account of the first experiments with motion picture technology and its subsequent development into a major art medium. The first TV sets appeared later--during the late 1930s--though it wasn't until after World War II that television found its way into virtually every home. This book reviews both film and television history as major conveyors of news, entertainment, propaganda, and education around the world. Barron's ticktock books present information on a wide range of subjects for young adult readers in illustrated, attractive magazine-style layouts. (Ages 10 and older)

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Television has become our major source of news, information and entertainment. Television shows us live events and pre-recorded events. Film presents us with entertaining stories that have been pre-recorded, sometimes on a studio set, sometimes on location. Students interested in filmmaking will find a wealth of information here about the process, as well as the profitability. This is a great title for capturing the imagination of the middle school reluctant reader. It is filled with pictures, diagrams and brief facts. A glossary and an index are included. This is one of four titles in the "Modern Media" series which includes Telecommunications, Music & Sound and The Computer Age. 2000, Barron's Educational Series Inc., Ages 10 to 14, $5.95.
