TV city: Brisbane, 1959-1965
Television is a complex entity, more than even a technology and a cultural form. The recent 'spatial' turn in media research opens the way to a new understanding of the early years of regular television broadcasting in Brisbane. Television has its own set of physical and social geographies which this article traces. These have many overlapping and distinct sites, which are addressed. Analysis is organized around two main nodes, those of the city and those of the home. We also emphasize their many points of interaction and linkage.
