'Laughs and Legends,' or the Furniture That Glows? Television as History?
2006 marked the fiftieth anniversary of broadcast television in Australia. This is an appropriate moment to look at the ways in which television itself has become a historical object; to consider some of the ways in which television is memorialised. This paper is concerned with the historiography of television. It looks for the way that television itself has been memorialised as history across four sites: publications (histories, memoires, academic and trade publications), exhibitions in cultural institutions, TV history screened on television, and TV memorialised by fans and professionals, both online and in physical locations.
