Tony Garnett is the first book-length study of one of the most respected and prolific producers working in British television. From ground-breaking dramas from the 1960s such as Up the Junction and Cathy Come Home to the 'must see' series in the 1990s and 2000s such as This Life and The Cops, Garnett has produced some of the most important and influential British television drama. This book charts Garnett's career from his early days as an actor to his position as executive producer and head of World Productions. Drawing on personal interviews, archival research, contextual analysis and selected case studies, Tony Garnett examines the ways in which Garnett has helped to define the role of the producer in British television drama. Arguing that Garnett was both a key creative and political influence on the work he produced and an enabler of the work of others, the book traces his often combative relationships with broadcasting institutions (especially the BBC). Additionally, the study discusses the films he made for the cinema and considers some of the ways in which Garnett's experiments in film technology 16 mm in the 1960s, digital video in the 1990s have shaped his creative output. Tony Garnett will be of interest to all levels of researchers and students of British television drama, media and film.
She needs to love, not just to be loved. Can she dare? The path she takes is shocking. It could destroy her. It might redeem her and restore her humanity. This is a story of love and its absence.

Lucy Foster, still in her thirties, is an internet millionaire. She is a connoisseur of exploitation and manipulation, of what is so and what seems to be so. She can even turn people into successful brands. With her magic, you can convince the world that you are who you want to be. But wealth and power and sex cannot assuage her loneliness. She needs to love, not just to be loved. Can she dare? The path she takes is shocking. It could destroy her. It might redeem her and restore her humanity. This is a story of love and its absence. Those who love are easy prey for those who cannot love. For them, power is love's substitute. They own the world, but it is empty of meaning.

For more than 30 years, Ken Loach's films have examined the social, political, economic, and psychological costs of living in Great Britain. These invariably controversial film and television works--Cathy Come Home, Kes, Hidden Agenda, Riff-Raff, and Land and Freedom, among others--represent a continuing commitment to using film for political purposes. In this first English-language book on Loach, McKnight brings together seven original critical essays on major aspects of Loach's work, an interview with the director, as well as comprehensive reference material. The essays examine Loach's ongoing concerns with social and political issues in Britain, questions of censorship, the way in which he develops film narratives around public issues, and the format and stylistic questions raised by his particular approach to filmmaking. An important collection for all students and researchers of contemporary film.

An exploration of the stylistic, aesthetic and thematic impact of hospital drama. This book argues that "new" medical dramas offer a different landscape from their predecessors, and they tend to disturb rather than reassure. The medical profession are often depicted as being forced to confront new management , ethical labyrinths, and noxious patients. The historical development of the "new" medical drama is also explored, along with the implications of, and anxieties within, the depiction of modern healthcare. Lastly the book looks at the parallels between cultural fascination with the body as either sick or perfect and the attractions of a genre that seems to revel in the juxtaposition of morbidity and glamour.
