Today transnational TV networks count among television's most prestigious brands and rank among Europe's leading TV channels. This is the first, dynamically told story of the extraordinary journey of transnational television in Europe from struggling origins to its present day boom. It is based in extensive research into the international television industry and makes full use of its author's remarkable access to leading industry figures, from Sky and Turner to Discovery and BBC World.The tale begins with a few cross-border TV channels, who fought hostile governments, faced antagonism from the broadcasting establishment and provoked the contempt of advertisers. But, Jean Chalaby argues, the planets came into alignment for pan-European television in the late 1990s, when a transnational shift in European broadcasting was produced. He shows how transnational television and globalization have transformed one another, and how transfrontier TV networks reflect - and help sustain - a global economic order in which the connection between national territory and patterns of production and distribution have broken down.

About the Author:

Jean K. Chalaby teaches media history as well as comparative media systems and international communication at City University, London, where he is Director of the MA in Transnational Media and Society. He is the author of 'The Invention of Journalism' (1998) and 'The de Gaulle Presidency and the Media' (2002) and editor of 'Transnational Television Worldwide' (I.B. Tauris, 2005).

Review:

'For both academics and policymakers, this is surely a notable contribution to our understanding of what is going on with respect to changing media cultures and spaces. Jean K. Chalaby takes a significant step forward in addressing the major transformations associated with globalization and transnational communications flows.' - Kevin Robins, Goldsmiths College.
