The battle for the people to broadcast:
Archival documents

 

Introduction

 

This CD contains close to 500 documents related to the struggle for democratised and open electronic communications systems in South Africa, the battle to transform the former state broadcaster, the South African Broadcasting Corporation, into a public broadcaster and the fight for the establishment of an independent broadcasting regulator. It is, essentially, a history, from primary sources, of the Campaign for Open Media (COM) and the Campaign for Independent Broadcasting (CIB). As a companion to The Broadcasting Independence Handbook (which is also accessible on this CD), this CD is invaluable. On it you will find original documents, petitions, minutes of meetings, records of strategy discussions, pamphlets, letters, position papers that vividly illustrate the ups and downs, victories and losses in the South African struggle to realise the demand: ‘The people shall broadcast’.

 

This page is the Table of Contents for this historical archive, never before as available to the public as it now is. In order to attempt to maintain some of the authenticity of the archives, the Table of Contents is ordered in ‘boxes’, ‘folders’ and ‘document numbers’.

 

If you have any questions, queries, comments or suggestions about the handbook or this archive, please do not hesitate to contact the Freedom of Expression Institute
