MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume is sensitive to identity formations involving social class, gender, ethnicity, race, and factory labour. ... The transnational authors of British TV Comedies, British and German, building on this expanding research, have elevated television comedy to a medium worthy of transcultural, cultural and political consideration for scholarly and general audiences." (Marcia Landy, Historical Journal of Film, Radio and Television, Issue 2, September, 2016)
