The aim of this article is to propose analytical tools which will enable researchers to connect the national and the global, and thus to reconcile these two views of television in an integrated global history. In order to achieve this aim, I will have to amend both the global view that exaggerates the global potential of television and the national view that ignores it. My focus will be on interactions between nations. There have been numerous international interactions during the whole history of television, which have been neglected by top-down globalizing views and by isolationist national historical writing.
