Inventing Television Culture

Men, Women, and the Box

Janet Thumim

Oxford Television Studies

  • Through close attention to selected programmes the book outlines the formation of the television institution in the UK from 1955, when ITV commenced broadcasting, to 1965 after the Pilkington Report and the start of BBC2.
  • The interaction of television and the feminine is explored against the background of the discursive climate of the UK between 1955-65.
