Exploring a range of issues relating to the achievements of documentary film during past decades, this book also considers their prospects at the start of the new millennium. John Grierson's contribution to the theory of documentary is examined, focusing in particular on his influence on international developments. The way in which documentarians have resorted to a wide range of fictional techniques in what is usually categorized as nonfiction work is considered, and the significance of new technologies like the DVD and CD for further development of the documentary is addressed.
