Corcoran, RTE and the Globalisation of Irish Television. Corcoran, Farrel. RTE and the Globalisation of Irish Television. Bristol and Portland, Intellect Ltd., 2004. 17.5 cm x 23 cm. 256 pages. Original softcover. Excellent condition with only very minor signs of external wear. Clean inside with solid binding.

Includes the following chapters: RTE Unsettled / Regulating Irish Broadcasting / Broadcasting and Government / The Economics of Broadcasting / Digital Television / Children and Television / The Difficult Birth of Irish Language Television / Globalisation etc.

″For about 40 years, RTE’s radio and television channels have played an enormous role in shaping Irish social and cultural life.

This work is a study of the structual transformation now taking place in Irish broadcasting. The book focuses on the television sector generally, but primarily on RTE, as it adjusts to a number of radical changes in the global field of forces whose impact began to accelerate in the mid-1990s.

RTE’s work is frequently shrouded in secrecy and mystique, which means that conspiracy theories abound about how it is governed and how it relates to various power centres in Irish life. This book is firmly aimed at increasing the transparency that should characterise public broadcasting, and demystifying this national institution that plays such an enormous role in the cultural and political life of Ireland.” (Publisher)
