About this book

This history of British and American television drama since 1970 charts the increased transnationalisation of the two production systems. From The Forsyte Saga to Roots to Episodes , it highlights the close relationship that drives innovation and quality on both sides of the Atlantic.

Reviews

'Perhaps one of the strongest points of this excellent book is the realization that despite many creative, industrial and socialcultural entwinements between the UK and US production cultures their output is, still, perceived, critiqued and marketed as a result of an outdated conception of producing entertainment from within and for a singular national culture.' - Kai Hanno Schwind, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television
