8 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 522 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."--BOOK JACKET
