This thesis presents a series of three case studies of the Chinese Spring Festival Eve Variety Show selected between 1983 and 2010. The case studies were chosen to exemplify the overall trend in how China’s television has developed against the broader socio-political context of major economic reforms taking place since the late 1970s.
