Description - British Television Drama in the 1980s by George W. Brandt
This is the first book to examine an outstanding decade of British television drama. The 1980s witnessed a series of changes and innovation in television, in which a fourth channel was established, studio production gave way largely to location filming, and programs reflected key political events. In this fascinating collection of twelve essays, the innovative programs of the period are analyzed and placed within their social and political contexts. The writers analyze programs as diverse as "Yes, Prime Minister," "The Jewel in the Crown," and "Inspector Morse" as well as politically controversial productions such as "Tumbledown," "Four Days in July," and "Edge of Darkness." The book contains photographs from each program, detailed chapter bibliographies, and production information.
