Broadcasting in Mexico (1979) traces the birth and growth of Mexico’s broadcasting services against the background of its geographical, cultural, demographic, economic and political structure. The development of Mexican radio and television has been characterised by innovation and experiment by both government and private enterprise, and sometimes the country has been the beneficiary of these efforts and sometimes the victim. Up to a certain point, the cultural infrastructure of the country itself dictated the path taken by the media, although there have been temptations to imitate the established structure of other countries.
