The audience-producer boundary has collapsed in indigenous and ethnic
community broadcasting, and this is the first comprehensive study globally
to chart the rise of its new relationship.

Based on studies of radio and television audiences in Australia, the
argue that community radio and television worldwide represents an essential
service for indigenous and ethnic audiences, empowering them at various
levels, fostering "active citizenry" and enhancing the processes of
democracy. The authors, former journalists, spent months on the road,
traveling tens of thousands of kilometers from urban centres to the most
remote regions of the Central Desert to ask why they engage with and adapt
local broadcast media. They draw on two decades of primary research
taken from face-to-face interviews and focus-group discussions with
audiences. Consequently, 'Developing Dialogues' offers international
researchers a new social, cultural and historical perspective on the
emergence of the unique Australian community broadcasting sector within the
context of other global trends. It will appeal to scholars of media and
cultural studies, as well as to industry practitioners and policy makers.
