Interpreting Diana by Rob Turnock

Book Description

Drawing on wide-ranging replies from people around the country, this title examines the role television played in providing news about the event of the Princess of Wales' death. The book goes on to explore the reasons why Diana's death affected so many people and suggests that TV is integral to the way we think about the world around us. At the same time, this study shows a Britain that was far from "united in grief" and that, while many people were profoundly upset, others were indifferent and surprised by the media interest and "mass hysteria".

Television and Consumer Culture by Rob Turnock Television and Consumer Culture, Hardback (July 2007)

Explores television's institutional, technological and programming developments during the post-war period, revealing how genres as different as action adventure series, serious dramas, situation comedies and quiz and game shows simultaneously promoted both consumer culture and class conflict.

ITV Cultures by Rob Turnock ITV Cultures, Paperback (September 2005)

Offers a range of perspectives on the complex and multifaceted history of a British commercial broadcaster, this book explores key tensions and conflicts which have influenced the ITV service. It shows that ITV has had to tread an uneasy line between public service and commercial imperatives, and between a pluralistic regional structure.
