Summary
"Television Industries provides a comprehensive introduction to the inner workings of the television industry, focusing on the key features of the contemporary television landscape: television as a business, the technologies of television, the infrastructures of the industry, programme development and production practices, scheduling, budgeting and selling advertising air time, television's policy and regulatory frameworks, and the culture of television." "The book includes both overview articles of aspects of the television industry and in-depth case studies of channels and programmes, ranging from BBC Worldwide to Discovery International, and from The Simpsons to Restoration. Contributions, written by a team of leading international scholars, are extensively cross-referenced to guide the reader through the complexities of this fast-changing industry. Television Industries is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding how television programmes are shaped, produced and sold, and the central role of television in the global media economy.
