Trevor Griffiths, Paperback / softback Book

Trevor Griffiths Paperback / softback

Part of the The Television Series series

Description

Trevor Griffiths has been a critical force in British television writing for over three decades.

His successes have included the series Bill Brand (1976), his adaptations of Sons and Lovers and The Cherry Orchard (1981) and his television plays, The Comedians (1979), Hope in the Year Two (1994) and Food for Ravens (1997).

During his creative life he has negotiated the issues of genre, politics, identity, class, history, memory and televisual form with a sustained creativity and integrity second to none. And he has parallelled this career with one as equally as eminent in the theatre, as well as the slightly more problematic forays into film-writing for Warren Beatty's Reds and Ken Loach's Fatherland. John Tulloch's incisive and wide-ranging volume is a perfect entry point not only for students of Griffiths' oeuvre, but also for anyone entering the discourses of television, media and cultural studies. -- .
