The continuing story of Irish television drama: tracking the tiger
Sheehan, Helena
Irish Television Drama: A Society and Its Stories appeared in 1987. It traced 25 years (1962-1987) of Irish society in a process of social transformation and the role of television drama in a struggle to define the nature of that process. This book is a sequel to that, advancing the story another 15 years (1987-2002). From Fair City to Family to Father Ted, it examines television drama in the time of the tiger, striving to come to terms with the flux of Irish life in an increasingly globalised world, in a time of significant changes in the climate of broadcasting and its structures of storytelling.
