Les réalisateurs de télévision : le déclin d'un groupe professionnel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


TV Film Directors : A Professional Group's Decline The first film directors, who worked in a context where TV bought little but produced much, defend their profession as being creative and artistic. Some of them were determined to use TV to educate the public. Their power has waned as a new generation of producers has risen. The latter advocate pleasing the public, and seem less concerned with pedagogical goals. The film directors who represented public service TV have been forced to yield before TV hosts and journalists who become producers. The professional identity of film directors is being redefined. Although this occupation has been gradually professionalized, the professionalization process, because of the political issues involved, is still in its initial phase.
