The Routledge Companion to British Cinema History, edited by Laraine Porter, I. Q. Hunter and Justin Smith, is out later this week. It contains a chapter by me on the video industry in the 1980s, in addition to 38 other chapters on a variety of topics from top-drawer scholars.
I'm really happy to part of a volume described by Professors Sarah Street (Bristol) and Briane McFarlane (Swinburne) as "monumental".
It's mega expensive, so please save yourself £165 and get your library to try and order a copy or two!
