Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Founded in 1922, the British Broadcasting Corporation is probably the most well-known national radio corporation in the world, but the BBC is just part of the British radio picture. There are pirate radio stations, community radio, commercial radio, and more recently, experimentation and development in the digital arena. All aspects of the 85 years of UK radio, from issues of regulation to the role played by commercial operators prior to World War II, are covered in this new book by Sean Street. The Historical Dictionary of British Radio relates the history of this medium through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, an introductory essay, a bibliography, and several hundred cross-referenced dictionary entries on the BBC and other companies, many of the specific stations, the more memorable programs and those who wrote for or appeared on them, and the administrative and technical aspects. This quick reference tool's structure and ease of navigation will have scholars, students, radio industry professionals, journalists, and critics turning to it again and again.

Book News Annotation:

This thoroughly cross-referenced volume provides a broad overview of 85 years of British radio, from the earliest technical breakthroughs to recent developments. The alphabetically arranged entries cover the activities of not only the well-known British Broadcasting Company (BBC) but those of its predecessors and competitors. The volume also features a chronology, a list of acronyms/abbreviations, and a general introduction. It concludes with an extensive bibliography, organized by subject. A radio practitioner since 1970, Street teaches radio at Bournemouth U. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
