READ BOOK The BBC and national identity in Britain, 1922-53 (Studies in Popular Culture)


Examining the ways in which the BBC constructed and disseminated British national identity during the second quarter of the twentieth century, this book is the first study that focuses in a comprehensive way on how the BBC, through its radio programs, tried to represent what it meant to be British. The BBC and national identity in Britain offers a revision of histories of regional broadcasting in Britain that interpret it as a form of cultural imperialism. The regional organization of the BBC, and the news and creative programming designed specifically for regional listeners, reinforced the cultural and historical distinctiveness of Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland. The BBC anticipated, and perhaps encouraged, the development of the hybrid “dual identities” characteristic of contemporary Britain. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of nationalism and national identity, British imperialism, mass media and media history, and the “four nations” approach to British history.

The monarchy and the BBC found their relationship mutually beneficialThe journal of the BBC, the Radio Times, is also used extensively to carefully address the nature and scope of programming during the critical thirty-year period covered in this bookAlthough there is a similar account of the BBC and the monarchy in Scannell and Cardiff, Hajkowski adds intriguing detail on the coronation week preceding the coronation of George VIDancing mad! The modernisation of popular dance 2Hajkowski argues that the BBC made a determined effort to produce programs that projected a positive image of the empire, an image that would encourage citizens to identify with it as a dynamic and powerful force

168-202) In 1949, Alun Oldfield-Davies, Controller of the BBCs station in Wales, declared: the basic job of the BBC in Wales is to nourish and encourage national unity and to add wealth, depth, and value to all aspects of national lifeHowever, the same progress cannot be claimed for Northern Ireland because its development towards broadcasting autonomy is marred by the fact that it meant giving in, to a degree, to a more conservative, triumphalist, and bigoted unionism (pEQuantity: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 Quantity:1 Add to Basket Turn on 1-Click ordering for this browser Dispatch to: Netherlands To see addresses, please Sign in Or Use this location: Update Please enter a valid UK postcodeTogether these groups negotiated the creation of a 'national' dancing style, which constructed, circulated, and commodified ideas about national identity

Given the BBCs current partial move to Manchester, perhaps this would have been an addition with contemporary relevanceCarso is also keenly interested in American government and politics, from the first partisan presidential election of 1796 through todays political campaignsThe grander statement that the BBC was the central site for the production of national identity is cogently argued but I wonder if a book which only considers broadcasting can make such a claim? Other institutions and events played their part and these would need at least acknowledgement before asserting the centrality of radio
