How to Cite a Film
If you are quoting from a film or television programme the elements which should be included in your bibliography are :
(i) title (in italics)
(ii) year (in round brackets)
(iv) DVD or Video cassette [in square brackets]
(v) place of distribution: distribution company.
Television programmes are sometimes collaborative ventures, with no single director. Include all the main details that you can. These should include programme title and year, series (if applicable ), production company (or channel), and date of transmission.
Please note it is not acceptable to reference a television programme you have viewed unless you can produce a recording (or transcript) of it.
