Description - The Television Genre Book by Glen Creeber
As with film, genre is central to the industry and visual form that is television. This book provides an introduction to the subject's core debates, issues and concerns. It is divided into eight sections: what is genre?; drama; soap opera; comedy; popular entertainment; children's television; and news and documentary. The central analysis is supported by in-depth "grey box" studies and relevant information on a varied range of television programmes such as: "The Oprah Winfrey Show"; "The Simpsons"; "Star Trek"; "Who Wants to be a Millionaire"; "Twin Peaks"; "Walking with Dinosaurs"; "The Singing Detective"; "Big Brother"; and channels such as CNN, Discovery and MTV.
