 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.
