“... a fascinating and insightful study.”  ·  French Review


Advances in audiovisual technology, most notably the advent of the popular usage of digital technology in the last few years, have altered the face of popular television. Thanks to cable, satellite and now digital technology, television broadcasts can reach an international audience. The reaction from cultural critics has been mixed. As the debate concerning the effects of new telecommunications and audiovisual technology continues unabated, this book examines the underlying hypothesis that collective allegiances are moving away from the national paradigm towards the global/local model and provides a balanced appraisal of the depiction of a select number of group identities on television in Britain and France.

Michael Scriven is Professor of European Studies at the University of the West of England, Bristol, and has published extensively in the field of French and European intellectual history, culture, and politics.

Emily Roberts is a Research Associate in the Department European Studies at the University of the West of England, Bristol.
