Published by Auckland University Press, 2000, 456 pages. This concluding volume of the history of New Zealand broadcasting starts in 1950. It begins with the shift from state to public broadcasting, the birth of TV and the spread of coverage nationwide. It then follows the many changes in the structure of bradcasting, from the NZBC through to the 1990s focus on radio and TV broadcasting as essentially commercial activities. Public and private broadcasting in both media are covered, and the narrative shows how private radio and television gained new acceptance as they rose to dominance in the 1990s alongside the growing commercialization of public broadcasting.
