Tod aus der Luft. Das Inferno von Coventry und seine Folgen Am Abend des 14. November 1940 begann die Bombardierung der englischen Industriestadt Coventry durch die deutsche Luftwaffe. Innerhalb weniger Stunden wurde ein Großteil der Stadt zerstört. Der Angriff, der keinem unmittelbaren militärischen Nutzen folgte, entfachte nicht nur den britischen Widerstandswillen, er wurde auch zum Symbol einer neuen Art der Kriegführung – und zu einem Wendepunkt im Zweiten Weltkrieg. Fassungslos reagierte die britische Bevölkerung auf die Zerstörung der historischen Metropole und die Gleichgültigkeit des deutschen Gegners angesichts der zivilen Opfer. Zudem trug die Bombardierung Coventrys wesentlich dazu bei, dass die öffentliche Meinung in den USA umschlug zugunsten eines Kriegseintritts an der Seite Großbritanniens. In der Folge wurde die »Coventry-Taktik« aber auch zur Blaupause: Mit diesem Bombardement rechtfertigten die Alliierten spätere Angriffe auf deutsche Städte wie Dresden. Frederick Taylor, einer der renommiertesten englischen Neuzeithistoriker, rekonstruiert den Angriff und seine historische Bedeutung nicht nur aus der Perspektive der beiden Kriegsparteien, er verleiht auch den Opfern des Infernos eine Stimme. Ein erschütterndes Zeitdokument – und ein Meisterwerk angelsächsischer Geschichtsschreibung.

This book examines the history of UK radio from its analogue beginnings to its digital future by highlighting the roles played by the BBC and commercial radio in ensuring the medium’s long-term success. Beginning as a mere technological innovation, radio developed into a broadcasting model which has sustained for almost one hundred years. The UK model was defined by a public service broadcaster responsible for maintaining standards of broadcasting, as well as commercial operators—acting illegally and then legally—who have sought to exploit radio’s economic potential. This book aims to show how both these entities have contributed to the success of radio in the UK, whether acting competitively or by cooperating in order to ensure radio’s survival into the next century. This study will appeal to students of media or anyone with a general interest in the history of radio.

British Radio Drama, 1945-1963 reveals the quality and range of the avant-garde radio broadcasts from the 'golden age' of British radio drama. Turning away from the cautious and conservative programming that emerged in the UK immediately after World War II, young generations of radio producers looked to French theatre, introducing writers such as Samuel Beckett and Eugene Ionesco to British radio audiences. This 'theatre of the absurd' triggered a renaissance of writing and production featuring the work of Giles Cooper, Rhys Adrian and Harold Pinter, as well as the launch of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Based on primary archival research and interviews with former BBC staff, Hugh Chignell places this high-point in the BBC's history in the broader context of British post-war culture, as norms of morality and behavior were re-negotiated in the shadow of the Cold War, while at once establishing the internationalism of post-war radio and theatre.

News and current affairs have been at the core of RTE's activity ever since its foundation, but more particularly since the inauguration of Irish television in 1961. This book focuses on the pressures, the programmes and the presenters in this controversial area. It is a story which touches on the most significant events in the political history of 20th-century Ireland, particularly the Northern crisis, and explores the responses and the responsibilities of a national public service broadcasting organization in an era of conflict and dramatic social change.
