Preview

This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to chart the similarities and differences – even convergences – between the media in a period roughly bracketed by the end of World War II in Europe and the present day (where we begin to take cogniscence of at least the possibility of a post-cinema and post-TV world). It then discusses the so-called ‘political economy’ of the relationship of film and TV in Europe in the second half of the twentieth century, and the notion of ‘cultural ecology’.

Keywords: media; television; film; cultural ecology; political economy
