Television industries by Douglas Gomery( Book )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While not a production study, this book attempts to provide an insight into the inner workings of the television industry. As such its central concern is with processes, not texts or techniques or histories. "Television Industries" focuses on the essential elements of the industry: the policy and regulatory frameworks, the swiftly changing world of video production technology, all of which provides the backdrops against which broadcasters shape and sell their products. The book also examines the working practices of scheduling, budgeting, selling advertising air-time and so forth. Where issues may be familiar to readers (for example debates around public service broadcasting) the entries aim to be explanatory and fresh. Of course, it's not possible to cover every aspect of what is a complex and ever changing industry. Nonetheless, the aim is to provide a starting point for students and new scholars as they start to research into the nature of the broadcasting industry

Cent ans d'aller au cinéma le spectacle cinématographique aux États-Unis, 1896-1995 by F Bordat( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aux Etats-Unis plus manifestement encore qu'en Europe, "aller au cinéma" a recouvert des réalités extraordinairement diverses. "Aller au cinéma", en 1902, dans un Hale's Tours and Scenes of the World n'a rien à voir avec "aller au cinéma" dans un nickelodeon de 1908 ou dans un picture palace de 1925. "Aller au cinéma" dans les années de la Dépression, quand se généralisent les doubles programmes, les primes de fidélité et les loteries, et quand les chômeurs viennent dormir, sinon rêver, aux interminables séances des cinémas de quartier, est sans rapport avec "aller au cinéma" dans un drive in des années cinquante. Les grands écrans et autres technologies des années cinquante, ajoutés aux mutations du public de l'après-guerre, transforment en profondeur l'expérience cinématographique, autant qu'aujourd'hui l'explosion des nouveaux médias de l'image. Et beaucoup de caractères du cinéma hollywoodien restent inexplicables dans l'ignorance des conditions de son exploitation. Les auteurs de cet ouvrage, économistes, sociologues, historiens du cinéma, américanistes ou critiques, s'attachent, selon leur discipline propre, à faire valoir cette diversité, et à décrire et analyser ce secteur de l'industrie cinématographique encore trop délaissé par la recherche
