‘The “War on Terror” is an often-used but little-analysed term, and in this collection leading international specialists unpack what is at stake in television that engages with it in factual, fictional and docudramatic forms. This book is essential reading on how the small screen represents and shapes the times we live in.’
-Professor Jonathan Bignell, University of Reading

‘Lacey and Paget’s collection explores the complex political imaginary now surrounding the idea of “terror”. Engaging perceptively with matters of visualisation, storytelling, engagement and affect, the contributors illuminate the often subtle role played by television in the circulation of knowledge and of fear.’
-Professor John Corner, University of Leeds

‘Lacey and Paget have collected a superb group of essays that focus on how 9/11 and the “War on Terror” accelerated the changing practices of fact-based programming on television. Highlighting the roles of technology and affect in equal portion, the editors theorise the relationship between record and report that shapes the dramaturgy of docudrama. This book is timely and a must-read in an age when television is reinventing its place in our culture.’
-Professor Janelle Reinelt, University of Warwick
