Radio and Television explores the link between the invention of the telephone and telegraph and the advent of radio and television. Following a fascinating trail of step-by-step technological advances readers will trace the impact of radio on society as it united people through common listening experiences and ultimately made the world a smaller place.

From the early players in the broadcast industry who even then sensed the technological and economic potential benefits of radio and television, to the scientists whose imagination lighited some of the most influential industries of our time, to the latest advances in satellite and digital services and the applications they may have in years to come, this volume puts readers in touch with the past, present and future of instant communication.
