The designer and maintainer of this site is Craig Hight. Much of the content and structure of this site are derived from research conducted towards the books Faking It: Mock-documentary and the subversion of factuality (2001, Jane Roscoe and Craig Hight, Manchester University Press, Manchester), and Television Mockumentary: reflexivity, satire and play in televisual space (2010, Craig Hight, Manchester University Press, Manchester).

Please note that this site is not maintained by Manchester University Press

This site is located within the website for the University of Waikato, New Zealand, and is part of the online resources maintained within Screen & Media Online (the information site of the Screen and Media Studies Department).

This site was initially developed during July - October 2001 to coincide with the initial publication of Faking It. An overhaul of the site was conducted in May 2003, reconstructing the site using frames. A detailed update of this site's content was completed in April 2009, in anticipation of the launch of Television Mockumentary. Incremental changes occur whenever the designer has time. (Details of any other major revisions will be listed here.)

Many of the images in this site were taken from within the public domain - particularly from other websites. If you recognise any images that you hold copyright for, and do not want them to be used here, please contact the designer and they will be removed immediately.

This site is intended to be updated as and when needed and every effort is made to check links regularly (obviously within the time constraints of the author). If you notice any dead links, incorrect content, inclusion of copyrighted material, or have any other concerns specifically relating to the content or organisation of this website, please feel free to use the contact details included below:
