Star trek and American television by Roberta E Pearson 8 editions published in in English and held by 1, WorldCat member libraries worldwide "At the heart of one of the most successful transmedia franchises of all time, Star Trek, lies an initially unsuccessful s television production, Star Trek: The Original Series. In Star Trek and American Television, Pearson and Messenger Davies, take their cue from the words of the program's first captain, William Shatner, in an interview with the authors: 'It's a television show.
The book is organized into three sections, dealing with firstly, the context of production, the history and economics of Star Trek from the original series to its final television incarnation in Enterprise Secondly, it focuses on the interrelationships between different levels of production and production workers, drawing on uniquely original material, including interviews with star captains William Shatner and Sir Patrick Stewart, and with production workers ranging from set-builders to executive producers, to examine the tensions between commercial constraints and creative autonomy.
These interviews were primarily carried out in Hollywood during the making of the film Nemesis and the first series of Star Trek: Enterprise. Thirdly, the authors employ textual analysis to study the narrative 'storyworld' of the Star Trek television corpus and also to discuss the concept and importance of character in television drama. The book is a deft historical and critical study that is bound to appeal to television and media studies scholars, students, and Star Trek fans the world over. It closely examines children's concepts of real and unreal and how they learn to make distinctions between the two.

Mire Messenger Davies draws on material gathered from an audience research project commissioned by the BBC, based on surveys, structured discussions with children and interviews with programme makers and policy makers. The book explores a number of complex and controversial issues. What do children think is the ideal television service for them, and for others? How is media consumption managed and negotiated in the home? How is the relationship between programme makers and audience changing in the light of global broadcasting trends?
And perhaps most importantly, how much attention should be paid to children's views about these issues and the future of children's television? This engaging and accessible book will appeal to a broad audience. Passar bra ihop.
A fresh approach to the music, games, stories, lessons, inspirations, irrepressible fun and memories that children have always loved. Filled with playful dialogue, zany characters, gentle personal moments, sweet harmonies and engaging rapport.
