Abstract
“Reflections on the Past, Questions of the Future--Public Service Broadcasting: A Case
Study of The Bahamas Broadcasting System, 1930-1993."
The broadcasting history of The Bahamas parallels the history and development of the country.
The British introduced broadcasting to the colony in 1937. It was based on the British public
service model. When The Bahamas dismantled colonization with independence from Britain in
1973, the broadcasting system retained the structure that was left by the British. From its
inception broadcasting was state-owned, a condition that remained in effect until 1993.
Throughout its seventy-two years of history, broadcasting in The Bahamas has faced numerous
changes and challenges. Today, perhaps its greatest challenge is staying economically viable and
aesthetically appealing to local audiences. This article examines four significant periods of
growth in the history and development of broadcasting in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas
from its inception in 1930 to the beginning of private commercial radio broadcasting in 1993.
