Play For Today: The Evolution of Television Drama
Manchester University Press, 2000 - 267 pagine
Since it was published in 1975, Play for Today has become a leading introduction to writing and producing drama on television. Irene Shubik, in a unique survey of British television in its Golden Age, describes the role of the producer in the making of an original television play, from initial discussions with writers to broadcast. In tracing the rise of television drama in the context of her own career, she details the intellectual, financial and technical problems of productions, and includes a fascinating chapter on the effect of reactions from critics and viewers. In this new edition, Shubik adds a firsthand account of how the popular Rumpole of the Bailey series evolved and how she developed the critically and commercially successful The Jewel in the Crown.
