Life on air : a history of Radio Four by David Hendy( )

16 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Hendy draws on new interviews and privileged access to the BBC's vast archives to illuminate the controversies behind the creation of some of Radio Four's most popular programmes. He reveals the station's struggle to justify itself in a television age favouring clear branding and tightly-targeted audiences - a struggle that has led to passionate disputes between the BBC and its fiercely loyal, highly influential listeners. This story is about more than the survival of one radio network. Radio Four has been a lightning rod for all sorts of wider social anxieties over the past forty years, and the story of its development is at the same time a compelling insight into the very nature of British life and culture."--book jacket

Public service broadcasting by David Hendy( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Challenging the opinion that public service broadcasting is a thing of the past, David Hendy explains its importance in the present - and in the future. Written by a leading expert in the field, this book explores the development of public service broadcasting, outlining the key debates and issues, while situating them within wider cultural contexts. Hendy uses media history to consider the outlook for broadcasters such as the BBC, and other networks and stations around the world. He analyzes how these institutions shape society, culture, and politics, focusing on how key ethical and cultural values - such as enlightenment, impartiality, service, choice, and trust - have been constantly reinvented to ensure that broadcasting can carry on being a public 'good' as well as a commercial product. Clear, concise, and contemporary, Public Service Broadcasting is invaluable reading for all students of media and broadcasting, and for anyone interested in a strand of media that has had - and continues to have - an enormous social and cultural impact, not only in Britain, but across the globe. DAVID HENDY is Professor of Media and Communications at the University of Sussex. He is the author of Radio in the Global Age (2000), Life on Air: a History of Radio Four (2007), which won the Longmans-History Today Book of the Year, and Noise: a Human History of Sound and Listening (2013). He also broadcasts regularly, and has presented series about media and cultural history on both BBC Radio 3 and BBC Radio 4"--

A human history of sound and listening by David Hendy( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In prehistoric caves, drummers used natural acoustics to recreate natural sound. In classical Europe, orators turned the human voice into a lyrical instrument. And in Buddhist temples, the icons' ears were exaggerated to represent their spiritual power. In a narrative history of the subject which puts humans at its centre, and coinciding with the author's major Radio 4 series on the same subject, historian David Hendy describes the history of noise - which is also the history of listening
