Description

Film and television are now closer together than ever before. While television may once have been regarded as the enemy of cinema, it has since become a major source of funding and revenue for the film industry. In Europe, and especially in Britain, television has more or less become the film industry.
What is the history of involvement between film and television in the US, Europe, Britain and Ireland? What are the sources of television finance for film and what are the consequences for the types of film made?
These are just some of the questions which an impressive mix of academics and media professionals address in this stimulating and varied collection.
