Abstract

This thesis brings together work I have published in the last

five years in academic journals and edited book collections. All

the material presented in the thesis, much of it substantially rewritten,

will appear in the trilogy I have been working on since

my last published book, Radio, Television and Modern Life

(Blackwell 1996). The organising structure of the thesis and its

substantive concerns corresponds with that of the three books

that will come out of it. The form and content of the thesis, and

its relation to the books, is discussed in some detail in its

introduction. Its fundamental concern is with human time

which I have explored in all my writings since I began research

thirty years ago, with my late friend and colleague David

Cardiff, into the early history of the British Broadcasting

Corporation. The medium of radio is time. Historiography deals

with past time. The academic work of writing history on the

other, and the temporality of radio and television on the one

hand, are the first two themes of this thesis which shows that

the orders of time in which they work are divergent rather than

convergent. The third section of the thesis attempts their

reconciliation through the recovery of meaningful time.
