Summary

Fans, Feminisms and 'Quality' Media considers how long-running and popular radio and TV programmes such as Inspector Morse and The Archers participate in contemporary debates about ethnicity and national identity, gender and feminisms, and tradition and modernity. Examining the connections between these programmes and heritage film, Lyn Thomas reveals how both programmes, in different ways, reflect tensions in postcolonial British culture and contribute to definitions of 'quality' in the media. Through in-depth research and interviews with listeners and viewers, she investigates the social construction of identities (particularly feminist identities) in talk about media texts, showing how popular radio and TV series become part of their audience's own personal narratives.
