Overview

Independent Television in Britain: Volume 3 by Jeremy Potter

The third volume of this history of independent television in Britain focuses on the central issues facing the Authority and companies during twelve and a half eventful years between the beginning of a new contract period in July 1968 and the announcement of the successful applicants for new contracts in December 1980. For ITV these were years of recession and inflation, of expansion and prosperity - above all, of enquiry and uncertainty.
