An examination of a century of screen representations of Ireland from a cultural studies perspective. Analyzing historical and contemporary examples from both film and television, the book offers a thematically-informed synthesis of the most influential research on Irish audio-visual culture. The opening chapters discuss the pertinent features of Irish history and analyze critical debates about Ireland's cultural development in the 20th century, favouring and exploring postcolonial representations. Part Two opens with a concise history of television in Ireland, from its radio precedents to a consideration of its global satellite future and goes on to discuss chat shows and soaps, sitcoms and documentaries and dramas of the Troubles. There are key bullet-pointed header questions and relevant statistical data.
