Unabridged - 5 tapes = 4 Hrs 5 Mins, MP3/Variable
- CBC Audio - 2001
From the Massey Lecture Series: Noam Chomsky, the internationally acclaimed linguist and political radical inquires into the nature of media in a political system where the population cannot be disciplined by force and thus must be subjected to more subtle forms of ideological control. Specific cases are illustrated in detail, using the US media primarily but also media in other societies. Chomsky considers how the media might be democratized (as part of the general problem of developing more democratic institutions) in order to offer citizens broader and more meaningful participation in social and political life.
The five radio broadcasts recorded here were heard in 1988 as the thirty-eighth annual series of Massey Lectures. The Lectures were arranged by the Ideas unit of the CBC. The producer of the series was Philip Coulter, the executive producer was Bernie Lucht and it was hosted by Lister Sinclair.
