Imaginary Dreamscapes was written by scholars and researchers who have refined their skills to describe and interpret fiction while maintaining industry.
Experts in the history of broadcasting in their perspective countries have developed a comparative approach to assess the national specificity of television in their own countries on the basis of the similarities and difference with other national contexts.
