Television is part of our everyday experience, and is one of the most
significant aspects of our cultural lives today. Yet its practitioners and its
artistic and cultural achievements remain relatively unacknowledged. Each
volume provides an authoritative and accessible guide to a particular
practitioner's body of work, and assesses his or her contribution to television
over the years. Many of the volumes draw on original sources, such as specially
conducted interviews and archive material, and all of them list relevant
bibliographic sources and further reading and viewing.
Although the series is addressed primarily to students and scholars of
television, the books will also appeal to the many people who are interested in
how television programmes have been commissioned, made and enjoyed.
