A sense of place

Regional British television drama, 1956-82

Lez Cooke

Published by Manchester University Press

  • A concluding chapter brings the story up to its privatised present and considers its possible futures
  • A pioneering study that examines English regional television drama from its beginnings in the 1950s (BBC/ITV) to the 1980s (C4)
  • It revolves around two extensive case studies - based on the archives of Granada Television and BBC English Regions Drama - which contrasts their different impulses and results
  • Scholarly but accessible, Cooke uncovers a forgotten history of British television drama that will be of interest to both academics and the general reader
