The public mud-slinging and political gesturing that has kept it in the news have been accompanied by the simmering background of internal wars that affect the media monolith. Professor Richard Harding has been a man inside the ABC - among the men with the hottest seats and the best views of the bloody circus, the Commissioners. His brilliant observation of the events that have occurred in his time at the ABC gives a fresh insight into many of the issues that made headlines - the Bland affair, the staff commissioner, the continuing crisis and cries of "bias" in current affairs programmes, 2JJ and access radio, FM, the department of the media, the sports coverage tangle, etc. The effects of politics and government funding on the Australian Broadcasting Commission, and the role of the ABC as an opinion maker are seen in a realistic light from the centre of affairs." - BOOK BLURB Notes: Includes bibliographic references and index ISBN: 0725103159 Donation: donated by the family of Wayne Levy, 2006 More info
