TV distribution has undergone a massive increase in volume and value over the past fifty years, and yet we know little about what happens in between television programming production and transmission, when this may have crucial economic and cultural resonance. "New Flows in Global TV" fills the gap by investigating the global trade in TV programme formats. This pioneering investigation delves into how programme formats such as "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" and "Big Brother" appear in such markets as Argentina, South Africa, the Middle East and China. Studies include the international circulation of Dallas in the 1980s, Australian soap opera exports in the 1990s and overseas sales of United Kingdom television programming in the new millennium. "New Flows in Global Television" is a key text for those interested in global media, providing a comprehensive insight into the cultural, economic and social exchange that takes place at the centre of world television.
