About the Author

Robert Dillon has taught visual history for over twenty years, and after leaving Lancaster University where he was an Honorary Research Fellow in the Department of History, he remains a committed historian and a full-time writer


there are books that become the standard works in their fields for a generation or more. I would be very surprised if 'History on British Television' and 'the BBC and National Identity in Britain' do not establish themselves as “must-read” works

, James Chapman, University of Leicester, Visual Culture in Britain, 31 January 2012
