The book includes profiles giving insight into how personnel in the television industry - from recent graduates to television executives - think about their work. The Television Handbook offers chapters on the vigorous debates about what is meant by quality television, how news and factual programmes are responding to interactive technologies, and how formats such as Reality/Talent TV have risen in prominence. It also considers how drama, sport and music television can be discussed and interpreted.
