The concept of heritage cinema is now firmly established as an influential as well as much debated and contested critical framework for the discussion of period or historical representation in film most prominently with reference to british heritage and post heritage film successes since the 1980s but also to comparable examples from europe north america and beyond. The analysis presented in chapter 3 onwards draws centrally on the findings of the heritage audience survey my detailed questionnaire based survey of real members of the uk audiences for quality period films including specifically culturally british heritage and post heritage films which was undertaken expressly for this study. Yet the very idea of the heritage film has rested on untested assumptions about its audiences this book aims to break new ground in the scholarship on contemporary period films and makes a new contribution to the growing field of film audience studies by presenting the first empirically based study of the audiences for quality period films. This chapter draws together the most significant points to emerge from an analysis of the heritage film audiences as represented by the two groups who participated in the heritage audience survey and considers their implications for the debate around heritage cinema these implications are centred around questions of the coherence and distinctiveness of the heritage film .
