Broadcasting and Society 1918–1939

By Mark Pegg Copyright 1983

    Broadcasting and Society (1983) examines the power of radio broadcasting as a medium of instant communication and entertainment. It is a detailed and critical examination of the social changes brought about by radio broadcasting in the crucial and formative stages between 1918 and 1939 – whether broadcasting was successful in keeping people better informed, in introducing wider interests, and its influence on social behaviour.
