The advent of mass-market entertainment in the form of cinema, radio and television allowed designers to shape the experience of huge new audiences and powerfully influence public taste. This collection of academic essays investigates design as it was applied to and influenced by the entertainment industry, discussing topics from the switch from gas to electric lighting in London theatres to the design of the TV programme Ready Steady Go! (1963-6).
