Dear Screen-L:

The British Film Institute  is pleased to announce the publication of:

Tele-Visions: An Introduction to Studying Television

Glen Creeber is a senior lecturer in film and television studies at 
the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. His books include _Dennis 
Potter, Between Two Worlds_ (1998) and  _Serial Television: Big Drama 
on the Small Screen _(bfi 2004).  He is also editor of The 
_Television Genre Book _(bfi 2001), and _50 Key Television Programs 

_Tele-Visions: Methods and Concepts in Television Studies_ has been 
specifically designed to offer a comprehensive, authoritative, 
accessible, and lively introduction to the subject of television 
studies.  Written by many of the leading international figures in the 
field, it covers all the major issues, debates, key terms, histories 
and methodologies that make up this exciting new area of expertise. 
Skillfully illuminated through actual programs, detailed case 
studies, and recommended readings, it offers invaluable insights into 
how television is produced, broadcast, controlled, consumed, and 
critically examined. From textual analysis to audience studies; from 
studying drama to studying documentary; from policy and regulation to 
regionality and globalization; from authorship to ideology; from 
modernism to postmodernism; from aesthetics to fandom; from histories 
to futures; this book offers an expansive and clearly structured 
account of both how and why we study television.

British Film Institute books are distributed in North America and 
Asia by the University of California Press.

Full information about the book, including the table of contents, is 
available online:
