Film and Television by Wordsworth
In this text there are descriptions of how film and television were developed, looking at the key inventions that made moving pictures possible. It explains how films and television programmes are produced and projected or transmitted to the audience, and looks at the use of special effects to create imaginary worlds. The book examines the wider applications of film and television technology - not just in entertainment, but in the world of work and explores the impact that changing technology will have on the way we spend our leisure time in the future. This book is part of a series which studies some of the most important technologies to emerge this century, and emphasizes the way in which these inventions have been used and their impact on our lives and the lives of children.
