This chapter begins with a discussion of the development and influence of broadcast media. It then describes how three ongoing phenomena — technological convergence, globalisation, and horizontal and vertical integration — form the vital context for discussion of media regulation in the modern era. It considers the power of the media and the significance of the claim of freedom of communication. Finally, the chapter introduces the vision of the legal and constitutional context for media regulation that informs much of the rest of this book.

Keywords:   broadcast media, technological convergence, globalisation, horizontal integration, vertical integration, media regulation, media, freedom of communication
