By Christoph Hilgert

Formen, Bedingungen und Bedeutungen von Jugenddarstellungen im westdeutschen und britischen Hörfunk in der frühen Nachkriegszeit.

Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg entspann sich in Westdeutschland und Großbritannien eine in depth, von ambivalenten Zukunftserwartungen geprägte Debatte über die Jugend. Christoph Hilgert zeigt, wie das Radio Vorstellungen über die Jugend und jugendkulturelle Entwicklungen durch Wort- und Musiksendungen prägte. Einerseits wurde Jugend als unerhörte Bedrohung des establishment beschrieben, andererseits verschafften sich Jugendliche durch das Radio Gehör. Die medien- und kulturhistorische Studie bietet einen innovativen Beitrag zur Historisierung des überraschend ähnlich verlaufenden Wandels der westdeutschen und der britischen Gesellschaft, ihrer Generationenbeziehungen, Wert- und Moralvorstellungen sowie ihrer Medienkultur in dieser Zeit.
