9780007575497: A History of Television in 100 Programmes

A journey to revisit and revive the history of the ‘idiot's lantern’, ‘A History of Television in 100 Programmes’ gathers eighty-odd years of televisual evolution.

Celebrating and mimicking the serendipitous joy of its scheduling jumble this book records just how much stranger it used to be, how much more brave, foolhardy, unselfconscious, creatively energetic, before commerce knocked those fascinating corners off its character. At its best and at its worst, television is brutally honest and charmingly deceitful, sentimentally partisan and coldly dispassionate, obscenely lavish and ludicrously cheap.

This varied hundred explores those overlooked gems alongside justly wiped follies, overcooked spectaculars and underfunded experiments that are as much a part of TV history as the national treasures and stone cold classics. They can tell us just as much, and sometimes more, about the nature of television, those who crafted it and those who lapped it up, from the days when television was at the most exciting, creative stage of any medium: a cottage industry with the world at its feet.

Descrizione libro HarperCollins Publishers, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An entertaining and illuminating celebration of televisual history by cultural historian Phil Norman For decades, television occupied a unique position in the national imagination. By today s standards the box was tiny, but it dominated the living room in a way its technically superior descendants never quite manage. Has the television lost its power in the internet age? Cultural historian Phil Norman goes in search of such questions as he tells the history of TV through 100 ground-breaking programmes. He celebrates the joy of the TV schedule which, in the days of just a few channels, threw up dizzy juxtapositions on a daily basis: an earnest play might be followed by a variety spectacular; a horror anthology that drove children behind furniture followed a sketch show that chewed the carpet. This riotous mix, now slowly disappearing as themed channels and on-demand services take over, gave television a sense of community that no other media could compete with.The wonderful variety of programmes in the book includes overlooked gems and justly wiped follies, overcooked spectaculars and underfunded experiments - just as much a part of TV history as the national treasures and stone-cold classics.
