Prison radio - communicational potential

Thursday, 13 December 2018 - 6:00pm to 6:30pm

Radio produced and broadcast by prisoners for prisoners has emerged as something of a media social movement with initiatives and developments happening in many parts of the world. Charlotte Bedford played a founding role in the establishment of the UK National Prison Radio service and her book, “Making Waves Behind Bars”, just published, presents a history of the Prison Radio Association in the UK. Currently she’s investigating ways that radio can be used - both inside and outside of prisons in South Australia - to improve the wellbeing of prisoners and better prepare them for reintegration into society.

This show casts a critical eye on the myriad ways in which we communicate with each other in our increasingly interconnected, multi-media platform world. Each week we mix down the who, the what, the where, and the how of particular communication events, messages, trends and technologies, and then consider: what impacts and what consequences?
