Overview Overview

This module examines the relationship between factual as well as fictional forms of television, the institutional context in which they are produced and the social reality in which they are situated. It considers the emergence of television as a live medium and the development of formal characteristics of reality-based television ranging from news, current affairs and factual entertainment to soap opera, docu-drama and commercials. Throughout the module, students will theorise and analyse the notion of the ‘real’ embedded within the logic of television, including its institutional organization, its production context, its socio-political environment and its reception.
