What is Entertaiment?

Entertaiment is an eclectic and evolving collection of themes, images and structures that have developed over time and across the different forms of media. It is an important record of how entertainment and its associated ideas have evolved to suit changing social circumstances and cultural tastes. It demonstrates the ease with which familiar entertainments can be remixed to create new experiences for a diverse audience. Entertainment can vary in scale: from a personal selection of pre-recorded material for private consumption; to a banquet adapted for two; to performances staged for thousands and broadcast for a global audience.
