Television and film not only entertain and reflect social change, they may also participate and influence these changes -- the recent success of The Full Monty and Billy Elliot show popular British comedy based on such painful social transformations.Looking at Class brings together film and television practitioners with academic students of cultural and economic change to examine the media representation of the British working class in the twentieth century -- a time of decline for the manual working class when a complex service-based economy emerged. The book covers a large range of genres from documentaries to soaps and shows that complex cultural transitions can be communicated clearly in prose as well as in screen drama.

Drawing on the work of international contributors Media Organization and Production examines a wide range of global-local media organizations and the production of different mediums and genres. Following the editor's introduction which sets out the principal differences of approach and defining debates, chapters address: transnational and national, commercial and public service corporations; international film and TV co-productions; children's television news production, the historical development of 'liveness' on radio, and music journalism; the politics and organizational forms of alternative media production including radical newspapers, video and the internet; and the changing 'production ecology' of natural history television. These topics are examined through a variety of theoretical and conceptual frameworks that help to illuminate how cultural production often involves a complex articulation of differing influences and constraints, both material and discursive, intended and unintended, structurally determined and culturally mediated.Together the chapters in this book help to recover this complexity and thereby help us to better understand the nature and output of today's media.

A philosophical perspective on class-struggle anarchism in Britain today that identifies the main principles distinguishing this tradition from competing Leninist, liberal and social democratic groupings. From these key characteristics, Franks then constructs an 'ideal-type' of anarchism against which the theory and practice of contemporary groups are assessed. All the recurring concerns of anarchism are subjected to his scrutiny: the nature of the revolutionary subject; workplace and community organising; violence and the meaning of direct action.
