Selected contents from this journal

In the contribution on the TV dramaturgy we are approaching television as a technical medium, whose function was primary informatic - with the help of a picture and sound to catch a certain phenomenon and then trasfer it on the surface of the TV screen. As the time passed, the TV has been developing itself in both aspects - with regard to its form, and the scope of the contents. It has become the medium promoting its TV contents massively, catching thus all spheres of the human activities - the artistic sphere, too. The inner structure of TV and its programmes has been changing, and the same applies to its outward effect. The activity of TV practical dramaturgy has had to adapt to these conditions. TV has become the center of conjuction of the artistic and outside artistic spheres within the area of a single TV format. The information medium has taken over the role of a holder of the aesthetic and the ethical values as well as the emotions. TV artistic and outside artistic creation are in a constant contact. Common, the similar and derived features of the work and the depiction methods can be found in the TV creation almost in all its fields. This has been reflected in everyday accepting of TV contents by the spectators in both ways - in a direction inside, in the form of TV creation and dramaturgy, and in a direction outside, in a cultural and a social routing. We are getting to the utility culture, the commercial culture containing the artistic elements, in short, to the mass-medial culture where TV has reached a firm position with its deliberate 'popular dramaturgy'.
