CHAPTER ONE 1.1 INTRODUCTION ,, Broadcasting has been existent smce the nineteenth century. It means the airborne transmission of electromagnetic audio signals (radio) or audiovisual signals (television) that are accessible to a wide population via standard, readily available receiwrs (David Marc 2006). Broadcast television, McLuhan pointed out, is capable of carrying all types of aural and visual information. It conveys sound, color, light, shade, movement, the human voice, and the images of all other media ( I 990) In 1926 the first televised television broadcast was carried out by John Logie Baird. who broadcast a televised image to an audience at the Royal Academy of Science i11 London. Since then TV has been a remarkably a volatile medium, its technology h:is steadily changed its content has constantly evolved and various people have come out to criticize the medium due to its presumed effects. In Uganda television was first thought of by the protectorate government in .July 1957 who wanted to use it as a means to spread colonialism into the protectorate but \las later termed as 'impractical'. When Uganda got her independence the then Prime Minister Dr. Milton Obote officially switched on UTV on October 1963, programs were set that were to be aired by the national broadcaster that was owned and controlled by the gm crnment of Uganda.
