Abstract

In its early years, cinema was, for a time, envisaged as potentially a domestic medium and later television was first envisaged as a theatrical form. This suggests that neither is intrinsically one or the other. This article looks at the history of both media and considers the aesthetics of film and television as these have been developed and theorised, arguing that the assumption of television as an essentially 'live' form has limited its dramatic potential.
