This book addresses current debates about globalisation and culture by tracing the emergence of Australia as a significant exporter of television to the world market. The authors investigate why Australian programmes have found such international popularity. The text examines the Australian industry and the international television marketplace. It also looks at the impact of Australian programmes on the television cultures of the importing countries. The authors outline policy implications and speculate on future directions of Australian television.
"Australian Television and International Mediascapes serves as an excellent piece for examining global media....for a thoughtful and thought-provoking look at global program distribution and its effects, this book is worth obtaining." Lynne Schafer Gross, Journal of Broadcasting and Electronic Media
