This book uncovers the revolutionary journey of British Asian radio broadcasting. It investigates how British Asian radio broadcasting began in England in the 1960s and developed into the 2000s. The book reflects on the existing literature on media and migration, particularly the issues of settlement and race relations, and examines how the BBC and the government took initiative to address these issues. It also critically analyses the need and demand of the Asian community for its own radio platform, discerning the role of the BBC’s radio initiatives, as well as other community-oriented radio experiments, in contributing to the creation of independent British Asian radio in England. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Ethnic and Mother-tongue Radio Broadcasting, Cultural and Communication Studies, Media History and British Cultural History. It will also help broadcasters, media regulators and policy-makers understand the social and cultural context of the communities they address.
