Abstract

Review of a book which seeks to understand the relationship between television representations of the world of business on UK television. The book is based on research funded by an Arts and Humanities Research Council grant. The review highlights a transition from a genuine documentary approach to business television programming, to its incorporation into the contemporary programme format known as 'reality television'. The review highlights the ways in which this kind of television programming has merged with a pervasive celebrity culture.
