Abstract

This set of essays delivers perspectives on the on-going debate on the arts in today’s society. Several methods of criticism are utilised and fundamental views are conveyed by practitioners from the theatre and television industries. With British television beginning in the 1930s, it was closely related to the theatre, and with the process of producing drama. These critical essays explore the way in which drama and theatre are depicted on British television. It examines how drama literature and existing plays are changed through the technologies and production of television and altered from a new audience. There are extended discussions on how Shakespeare’s plays have been mediated by television.
