Television plays an important role in how the public both understands and takes an interest in geography. As geographers, if we are to maximise the opportunities provided by television to promote geography, we need to understand how it is developing in the 21st century. The first part of this paper examines some of the concepts currently applied to the academic analysis of television. It also attempts to place programmes with geographical themes within the current media climate in Europe. The second part analyses four television series broadcast in the UK during 2007 with an emphasis on their geographical content.
