Television’s new engines

Keane, Michael A. & Moran, Albert (2005) Television’s new engines. Television and new media.


Internationalization is a key to the success of television formats. In order to understand format trade it is necessary to draw out distinctions between formats and genre. Engines—innovations in programming engineered by format devisors—allow formats to regenerate and hybridize across genres. The core principle of formats, however, is the practice of franchising. Causal relations can be established between formats, engines and the tradability of television culture. The article shows how formats have impacted upon platforms, markets, labor, audiences and distribution of TV content.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
