9:06 The Tuesday Feature: Revolutionary Radio

Fi Glover explores how  radio has been a potent political force in revolutions over the past 90 years. Since the 1920s radio has proven itself a powerful political force, not just reporting on changes of government but sending out a call to arms during some of the biggest revolutionary uprisings of the 20th century. Fi Glover tracks radio’s evolution, from its rise as an exciting new technology used by the Bolsheviks to demonstrate their modernity, to its reported demise amid the social media buzz of the Arab Spring.
