Description

This is a history of "guerilla television", a form of TV that was part of the larger alternative media tide which swept across the USA in the 1960s. Inspired by the fracturing issues of that decade, as well as the theories and writings of people such as Marshall McLuhan, Tom Wolfe, and Hunter S. Thompson, guerilla television put forth "utopian" programming in an effort to change the structure of information in America.show more

Back cover copy

In Subject to Change, Deirdre Boyle interweaves the narratives of three very different video collectives from the 1970s - TVTV, Broadside TV, and University Community Video - to tell a fascinating story of video "guerrillas" and their efforts to remake television to include voices and visions absent from the broadcast media mix.show more
