A critical history and contemporary overview of the Welsh media, this analysis emphasizes the local impacts of media within the wider context of UK politics and industry. The ways that media, culture, and communications intersect in everyday Welsh life and what this intersection means to issues of national identity, language, and geography are explored. Media ownership issues are also addressed, along with developments in regional media policy and potential impacts of the National Assembly on Welsh media-related matters.
