Since 2000 there has been a significant historical turn in television drama studies. Previously, books on British television drama were either edited collections about writers, such as George Brandt’s British Television Drama (1981) and Frank Pike’s Ah! Mischief: The Writer and Television (1982); books by people who had worked in the industry, such as Irene Shubik’s Play for Today: The Evolution of Television Drama (1975) and Shaun Sutton’s The Largest Theatre in the World: Thirty Years of Television Drama (1982); or academic volumes such as John Tulloch’s Television Drama: Agency, Audiences and Myth (1990) and Robin Nelson’s TV Drama in Transition: Forms, Values and Cultural Change (1997).
