Topics covered include: the history of the soap opera genre, narrative conventions, ideas of realism, current TV production contexts, approaches to soap opera audiences, links with other media and issues of ideology. This Guide is written by teachers, combining challenging theory with accessiible and up-to-date practical teaching ideas.
