This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book introduces new material in order to account for newly flourishing mixtures of documentary and drama. Docudrama has necessarily had to adjust to the cultural moment. Developments in forms and modes of access have meant that all the codes and conventions of traditional documentary have been made available for mixture with other kinds of representation. As digitalization re-forms the economy of broadcasting worldwide, the questions about the ethics and values that obtained continue to drive both popular and academic debate. Modern film and television drama has for sometime been framed and organised to capture the 'buzz' and immediacy available in other forms of 'direct cinema'. The spectrum of 'intergeneric hybridisation' in film and television can be represented graphically.
