Programme genres are not necessarily confined to the departments that originate them. Dramadocumentaries draw on traditions of both factual and fictional genres. New genres are constantly being invented, and sometimes they extend beyond the boundaries of their original department. The video diaries style is a recent success. Evolved by the BBC Community Programmes Unit as a way of giving greater access to the airwaves to more members of the public, it has developed into something that can now be recognised as a genre in itself.
Viewers had the option of staying with the channel with which they felt most at ease, appreciating either the more popular touch of ITV or the more intellectual approach of BBC2, or following their favourite genre across different channels, whether it be sport, games shows or soaps (Hargrave 1995). As more and more channels come on stream, it may be that channel identity is disappearing and that viewers will simply select programmes from their electronic programme guides. Genres will become more important than the structured flow.
