BFI TV Classics: Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Authored by Anne Billson, a new, seemingly scholarly, work about BtVS has been published this month by the British Film Institute.

"Series by series, Anne Billson unravels the magic of Buffy, examining the Slayer's antecedents and influences and exploring how, in a broadcasting environment inimical to long-running series, Whedon and his collaborators were able to push the outside of the envelope, take so many risks and create a fully realised mythology in which the fantasy elements are underpinned by an emotional honesty that beings fresh relevance to the age-old story of the struggle between Good and Evil."

Seems like the "BFI TV Classics" series is a new line, since the BFI apparently has published only two other titles, both from the UK: Our Friends in the North, last month, and The Office.
