Abstract

Over the last half a century, the developments in television broadcasting have exerted an immeasurable influence over our social, culutral and economic practices. The Television History Book presents an overview, written by leading media scholars, which collectively traces the history of broadcasting in two major centres of television development and export - Great Britain and the United States. With its integrated format, The Television History Book encourages readers to make connections between events and tendencies that both unite and differenciate these national broadcasting traditions. The numerous 'grey box' case studies illustrate the course of television innovation and are accompanied by lists of recommended further reading and an extensive bibliography. From the origins of the public service and commercial systems of broadcasting to the current period of technological and economic convergence, this book provides an accessible overview of the history of television technology, institutions, policies, programmes and audiences.
