(p.57) 3 The Making of the ‘Golden Age’
Television Drama

John Caughie

Oxford University Press

The period between 1965 and 1975 is considered to be the golden age of the British Broadcasting Corporation’s television drama. The 1960s and the 1970s marked the shift in values and culture of British television. During these times, the established traditions were questioned and rewritten and the tastefulness of TV programs altered. The boundaries of creativity were also transgressed in this era of British television. This chapter highlights several television dramas and a number of plays which tested the boundaries of British programming and contributed to its eventual development.
