Demographic vistas : television in American culture by David Marc( Book )

28 editions published between 1982 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Demographic Vistas, David Marc shows how we can take television seriously within the humanist tradition while enjoying it on its own terms. To deal with the barrage of messages from television's chaotic history, Marc adapts tools of theatrical and literary criticism to focus on key personalities and genres in ways that reward serious students and casual viewers alike.<br /><br />This updated edition includes a new foreword by Horace Newcomb and a new introduction by the author that discusses the ways in which the nature of television criticism has changed since the book's original publication in 1984. A new final chapter explores the paradox of the diminishing importance of over-the-air broadcasting during the period of television's greatest expansion, which has been brought about by complex technologies such as cable, videocassette recorders, and online services

Television is the most maligned of the modern media. Critics and even viewers casually call it the "boob tube" or the "idiot box" or even "bubble gum for the eyes." But in the hands of certain individuals it can become a creative canvas, a dramatic art that opens a distinctive window on our culture. There is a growing argument--an auteur theory--that despite all the commercial constraints, the television producer is capable of using TV as a medium of personal expression
Television in the antenna age : a concise history by David Marc( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Television in the Antenna Age is an overview of the medium's history and development in the United States. Integrating three major concerns - television as technology, industry, and art - the book introduces the complex, and often overlooked story of television and its impact on American life. It ends with a provocative mediation on the effect since the 1980s of competing technologies, the consolidation of media ownership, and the emerging aesthetics of twenty-first-century programming."--Jacket
