Nichols argues that the history of social representation in film, television, and video requires an understanding of the fate of both contemporary and older work. Traditionally, film history and cultural studies sought to place films in a historical context. Nichols proposes a new goal: to examine how specific works, old and new, promote or suppress a sense of historical consciousness. Examining work from Eisenstein's Strike to the Rodney King videotape, Nichols interrelates issues of formal structure, viewer response, and historical consciousness. Simultaneously, Blurred Boundaries radically alters the interpretative frameworks offered by neoformalism and psychoanalysis: Comprehension itself becomes a social act of transformative understanding rather than an abstract mental process, while the use of psychoanalytic terms like desire, lack, or paranoia to make social points metaphorically yields to vocabulary designed expressly for historical interpretation - such as project, intentionality, and the social imaginary. An important departure from prevailing trends in many fields, Blurred Boundaries offers new directions for the study of visual culture." -- BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. 149-182) and index ISBN: 0253340640 (alk. paper); 0253209005 (paper : alk. paper) LON: 10767942 More info

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://-'

Call No: 79ANZ CRI Author: Cribbin, John Source: AT Place: Sydney Publisher: Fontana PubDate: 1985 PhysDes: 135 p. : ill. (some col.), facsims., maps, ports. ; 28 cm. Subject: ART DIRECTION; HISTORY AND TV. AUSTRALIA; LOCATION SHOOTING. AUSTRALIA; PRE-PRODUCTION. AUSTRALIA; PRODUCTION, TV. AUSTRALIA; TELEVISION. AUSTRALIA; WAR ON TV; BURROWES, GEOFF; DIXON, JOHN; MILLER, GEORGE; ANZACS [TV] (AT, Pino Amenta, John Dixon & George Miller, 1985) Summary: "They were the tallest soldiers of any army; the only all-volunteer fighting force and the best paid of all the troops in the Great War. Yet in 1914 when they marched away, they were considered a rag-tag lot, probably too ill-disciplined to be useful in war. The proud but tragic fiasco of Gallipoli changed that perception [...] Now the Great War is the backdrop of ANZACS, one of the most dramatic and important series ever made for Australian television. In five parts the ANZACS brings to life forgotten aspects of an immense conflict, and the men - and women too - who were swept up or overtaken by it. Here, vividly illustrated in text and in pictures, is an account of how that series was made; the powerful and moving stories told; the stars who portray the dignity, bravery and poignancy of yesterday's heroes."--BOOK BLURB Notes: "The major 9 network television series (produced by Geoff Burrowes and John Dixon)'--Cover ISBN: 000636893X Donation: donated by the family of Wayne Levy, 2006 More info

This book traces this perceived paradox across genres including musicals, screwball comedies, and action thrillers and takes into account the changes of the representation of female soldiers from the 1940s into the 21st century. The author relates femail solders' provocative presence to contemporaneous political and cultural debates and to the ways that women's labor and bodies are understood and values' - TAKEN AND EDITED FROM BACK COVER ISBN: 9780822348474 Donation: donated by Senses of Cinema, 2013 Contents: Auxiliary military women -- Invisible soldiers : representing military nursing -- Musical military women -- Women on top : comedy, hierarchy, and the military woman -- Military women and service comedy : M*A*S*H and Private Benjamin -- Controversy, celebration, and scandal : military women in the news media -- Conflict over combat : training and testing military women -- Scandalous stories : military women as victims, avengers, and investigators More info
