VIEW Journal



VIEW Journal of European Television History and Culture is a peer-reviewed, open access, multimedia and international journal dedicated to television histories and cultures from across Europe. It offers an interdisciplinary platform for academic research and archival reflection on television. Browse through our collection of articles to learn more about television in different European countries. From the Eurovision Song Contest under Franco’s dictatorship, television footage from Ceausescu’s era to television memories of elderly British women, the television retailer in France in the 50s, the Nostalgia Channel in Russia or early Finnish television, we invite you to take a journey through Europe’s television histories. Check out our biannual thematic issues here.
