Abstract

[Extract] Screen histories tend to fall out from production-centred or directors' perspectives, with screenwriters figured in transitory roles. Susan Lever’s aim to write 'a history of Australian television drama from the writer's point of view, treating the script as central to the creation' is a welcome flip of perspective that is coupled with the aim to address the 'neglect of television drama in literary history'.
