This work explores how American programmes have become an important part of British television culture since the 1950's, moving from schedule fillers to cornerstones and 'must see' attractions. The book analyses popular and industrial discourses, the changing roles of such programmes on British screens and interviews with key British broadcasters.

' American Television on British Screens offers a breadth of points of investigation, highlighting the many processes involved that shape the meanings of US imports in Britain. It provides valuable overviews of the existing literature and good points of departure to investigate, in more detail, how American programmes are incorporated into British television culture.' - Elke Weissmann, Critical Studies in Television
