    Beschreibung "The article discusses the reasons for the growth in television docudrama in Britain since
    1990. These stimulating factors include regulatory frameworks, especially the
    Broadcasting Act of 1990 that affected existing television institutions by introducing
    increased competition and budgetary pressures. Challenges to television documentary
    from falling audiences, and to drama from rising costs, also led to a reconfiguration of
    British television schedules and the emergence of new hybrid programme genres. The
    pressures of this changed environment led the hybrid form of docudrama to take on some
    of the functions of history programmes, social affairs, political investigation and
    responses to key events such as the September 11, 2001attacks. Docudrama makers were
    increasingly required to seek co-production finance and distribution deals with overseas
    television channels. Docudrama was already controversial because of its relationship with
    antecedent documentary and dramatic traditions, but the post-1990 British contexts
    presented both new problems and new opportunities. The relative immediacy of
    docudrama and its engagement with public affairs, married with its performativity and
    personalized mode of address, equipped docudrama to respond to challenging
    circumstances. It could fulfil the capacities of the television medium for both social
    extension and intimate involvement in a period when its component genres faced
    significant obstacles in doing so." (Information des Anbieters)
