Abstract:

Since its earliest days, the media machine has run two programs: what people want to hear and what is really happening - or news, as it became known.

In this episode, Bruce Petty asks whether humans have the media under remote control or the other way around. A Film Australia National Interest Program. Produced with the assistance of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
