I.B.Tauris is delighted to extend our congratulations to Dr Helen Wheatley, who has received the BAFTSS Award for Best Monograph for her recent work Spectacular Television: Exploring Televisual Pleasure. Wheatley was highly praised by the board of judges, who said: ‘Whether discussing the ‘contemplative’ gaze at spectacular landscape, the history of ‘Holiday’ broadcasting, the medicalised spectacle of the human body, or the way visual desire is constructed by television, Wheatley is in command of her work, and expresses everything wonderfully. Nothing about this book is less than a joy to read.’ 

Spectacular Television is available now, and can be ordered here.
