Course Title: The Golden Age of TV Drama
Course Number: C2226621
Course Description: Was there ever a Golden Age of television drama? The course will look at some of the seminal productions of the 60s, 70s and 80s that established the reputation of original TV drama as a new art form. The course will explore the influence of key writers, such as Dennis Potter, David Mercer and John Hopkins, and pioneering directors, such as Ken Loach, Peter Watkins and Edgar Reitz, and will consider the impact their productions had on the public in the age before multi-channel Television. Each week we will look at an individual play or series in terms of its stylistic techniques and innovations, its themes and its wider influence on the development of television drama.
