Rezensionen
"An important resource for scholars in multiple disciplines, the book brings together in one place a great deal of important information. ... The primary audience is those interested in television and film production: the book provides data and firsthand accounts and synthesizes that information into a persuasive narrative of development and forecast." (Rosemary Erickson Johnsen, Scandinavian Studies, Vol. 91 (3), 2019)
