Abstract:

"Australians have become increasingly visible outside of their native country as speakers and actors in radio and television, Australian media moguls have frequently bought up foreign companies, and people around the world have enjoyed such Australian productions as The Flying Doctors, Neighbours, and Kath and Kim. The origins, early development, and later adaptations of radio and television demonstrate how Australia has gone from being a minor, rather parochial, player to being a significant part of the international scene." "Historical Dictionary of Australian Radio and Television provides essential facts and information concerning the Australian radio and television industry through a chronology, a list of acronyms and abbreviations, 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."--Jacket.
