This chapter takes a look at the institutional frameworks where Beckett gained access to television personnel and what his authorship meant to them. It identifies the role of the authorial signature in his television work, and notes that some of the programmes studied in this chapter were directed by Beckett himself. This chapter also evaluates Beckett's authorship in relation to the particular conflicts and divergent assumptions around authorship in television institutions.
