Over 30 million people in South Africa watch TV regularly, yet there is a surprising dearth of published literature on television in this country. Tuning In: Perspectives on Television in South Africa fulfils the need for a comprehensive study of South African television that will be invaluable to undergraduate media students and other scholars of television. It will also appeal to the general reader who takes a keen interest in what appears on our screens. Tuning In: Perspectives on Television in South Africa is an interesting book that, after setting television in this country in its fascinating historical perspective, investigates the various genres of television that make up the rich fabric of what is on offer to audiences. In so doing, it explores issues of production, identity, public opinion and the making of meaning for South Africa’s widely diverse television viewers, who reflect the country’s culturally disparate society.
