Book Description

August 1993 0851703925 978-0851703923
This collection of essays from around the world examines how television influences, affects and reflects different cultures. The force of television as a homogenizing force, or "global policeman": acting on behalf of Western, predominantly American capitalism, is widely acknowledged. This work aims to illuminate the colonizing effects of television, and looks closely at how indigenous groups in countries as various as Australia, Canada and Brazil use TV. From "Video Diaries" in the UK, to grass roots, TV production in the Occupied Territories, these essays show how local resistance and radical innovation struggle in the face of an increasingly commercial global television system.
