Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Australians have become increasingly visible outside of the country as speakers and actors in radio and television, their media moguls have frequently bought up foreign companies, and people around the world have been able to enjoy such Australian productions as The Flying Doctors, Neighbours, and Kath and Kim. The origins, early development, and later adaptations of radio and television show how Australia has gone from being a minor and rather parochial player to being a significant part of the international scene. The A to Z of Australian Radio and Television provides essential facts and information concerning the Australian radio and television industry. This is accomplished through the use of a chronology, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and hundreds of cross-referenced dictionary entries on directors, producers, writers, actors, television and radio series, and television and radio stations.

Book News Annotation:

Moran (School of Arts, Media, and Culture, Griffith University, Australia) and Keating, co-editor of the web site TV EYE and station manager at the Melbourne community radio station Plenty FM, offer alphabetical, cross-referenced entries on Australian radio and television directors, producers, writers, actors, series, and stations. A nine-page introductory essay surveys the history and achievements of Australian broadcasting. The reference includes a list of abbreviations and acronyms, a detailed year-by-year chronology from 1885 to 2006, and a 100-page bibliography in categories such as fiction and nonfiction programs, social issues, government regulation, and theory and criticism. The book will be used by researchers, students, and general readers. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
