ISBN 1903053145. Reprinted with minor corrections. 156pp. Paperback. 85 illustrations. Preface by Piers Plowright. Sean Street, broadcaster, poet and historian, is Professor of Radio in the Bournemouth Media School at Bournemouth University, the first person to hold such a post in this country. Issued as a companion volume to Tony Currie's A CONCISE HISTORY OF BRITISH TELEVISION this informative and entertaining book is a completely original publication. To quote from Piers Plowright's Preface it is: "a coherent and dramatic sweep from the first scientifically-based attempts to send sound messages over distance to the rich and sometimes rude complexity of 21st century digital broadcasting...The style is crisp, clear and often witty." Perhaps uniquely in a study of radio history this excellent book recognises the importance of the various commercial radio stations, pre-war as well as post-war, balanced against those of the BBC
