The image decade : television documentary, 1965-1975 / by Charles Montgomery Hammond, Jr
New York: Hastings House, c1981.
Call No: 761 HAM Author: Hammond, Charles Montgomery Place: New York Publisher: Hastings House PubDate: c1981 PhysDes: 285 p. : ports. ; 25 cm Series: Communication arts books; Studies in public communication Subject: CBS; DOCUMENTARIES; KENNEDY FAMILY ON TV; NBC TELEVISION NETWORK; NEWS PROGRAMMES; NIXON [RICHARD M.] ON TV; NON-FICTION PROGRAMMES; POLITICS AND TV; SOCIAL PROBLEMS ON TV; VIETNAM WAR ON TV Summary: "During the volatile years of 1965-1975, television emerged as the single most potent medium for bringing truth to the American public. Unforgettably vivid images and thought-provoking, soul-stirring commentary came right into the living room, creating a new and exciting awareness of world events. Documentary became a form of television that could best speak the truth.
The Image Decade describes the evolution of commercial network relevision news and theme documentary during those turbulent years, offering theory, criticism, history, and practical illustrations. Provocative analyses of the work of outstanding documentary producers and reporters at NBC, CBS and ABC are provided, revealing how these men and women brought the great domestic issues, scientific advances and space explorations, war stories from Vietnam, the Middle East and Northern Ireland, and the successive power struggles in Washington into the American home.
Throughout this period, events both wonderful and terrible took place all over the world. Television was there to capture them, with the result that newsgathering became an essential public service offered by the networks. Television documentary took this service one step further by presenting an innovative visual manifestation of history. With its lively descriptions and informative appraisals, The Image Decade sheds a bright light on the major part television news and documentary has played in our lives." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes index; Bibliography: p. 267-269 ISBN: 0803834322 (pbk.); 0803834314 LON: 1892916 URL status: URL: 'http://-'

Quality popular television : Cult TV, the industry and fans / Mark Jancovich & James Lyons (eds)
London UK: bfi Publishing, 2003.
Call No: 725.3 JAN CorpAuthor: BFI Publishing Place: London UK Publisher: bfi Publishing PubDate: 2003 PhysDes: 23 cm, 204 pp Subject: NBC TELEVISION NETWORK; TELEVISION. UK; ELLEN [TV] (US, 1995-); STAR TREK - THE NEXT GENERATION [TV] (US, 1987-1994); BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER [TV] (US, 1997-2004); VIOLENCE ON TV; INTERNET AND TV Summary: Why are some contemporary television shows so compelling? The Sopranos, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Friends and ER are examples among many of a new era of the 'must-see' programme. These shows and others like The X-Files and Ally McBeal, have a compulsiveness, a depth of characterisation and 'back-story' that puts much of mainstream cinema to shame. Quality Popular Television examines this new category of mostly US-Produced 'cult' television and the reasons for its emergence. Looking at shows as diverse as Ally McBeak, Martial Law, Buffy, Lois and Clark, Star Trek: The Next Generation and Ellen, the book identifies the particular qualities necessary for success and how they relate to issues such as the economics of network scheduling, the growth of the internet and contemporary debates about television audiences.
