Notes-Bibliography Style

Television and radio programmes

  • To cite a TV or radio programme, locate as much of the following information as possible: title of the programme, name of the episode or segment, date when it was first aired, and the organisation that produced or broadcast the work. You may also include an episode number, the name of the director, producer or author of the episode or segment, and the names of key performers (if relevant to your discussion).
  • If you watched or listened to a recording in any medium other than its original broadcast, include information about the medium at the end of your citation.
