This unit takes an in-depth look at how television as a popular, mass medium is evolving in our contemporary age of media convergence. Broadcast television has created many genres of information and entertainment, with production and programming strategies to match. Through various case studies we investigate how television is adapting to the digital environment, and how audiences are interacting with it in new ways. Our current primary focus is on serialised television crime and detective drama.
