Televising History. Mediating the Past in Postwar Europe

Houndmills, Basingstoke, Palgrave Macmillan, 2010, 288 p., £55.

Televising History : Mediating the Past in Postwar Europe examines the representation of history on television in the context of the immense economic and political changes experienced in Europe in the postwar era, and particularly in the past three decades. It considers how elements of the recent and more distant past have been used and adopted by scholars and media professionals alike. The book shows how, within the broader context of cultural, economic, political and aesthetic change, pan-European developments in broadcasting, and particularly in televisual modes, forms and imperatives, have mediated the way in which the past is represented onscreen. Considering the programming of ten European nations, the contributors also represent a range of disciplines, from sociology and history to film studies and television studies, demonstrating the diversity and richness of this growing interdisciplinary field.
