This resource is intended to support teaching of the Crime Drama topic, which is the unit 1 section A examination topic for 2014. The topic can also be used for 2014 and subsequent years as the basis of controlled assessment work. The resource covers the Media Studies framework (Texts: Genre, Narrative and Representation, Organisations, Audiences and Users) in relation to Crime Drama and considers a range of contemporary case studies. Various teaching and learning activities are included, which could be used with a whole class or completed individually. The resource is suitable both as an introduction to the topic and for use as a revision tool.


While all resources were correct at the time of publishing, teachers should be aware that things move quickly in the media industry and should therefore check that the information is still current and correct.
