Under the Dutch authorities, programming on the Radio Ketimuran was required to be in the national interest, to contribute to public order, and to be politically neutral and culturally uplifting. Prewar broadcasting had thus presented an uncoordinated, differentiated blend of culturally assertive but politically State Monopoly Broadcasting, 1962–1981 29 bland programming to which the public had access on a “user pays” principle. In contrast, during the Japanese period, listeners’ access to radio was strictly controlled, even to the extent of banning private sets and forcing people to listen to public sets that could not be turned off.

These processes are examined in ¤ve chapters that analyze the history of state involvement in television, changing conceptions of the audience, a popular children’s program, a soap opera, and the national news. In each of these chapters I focus on the inscribed construct of the idealised Indonesian subject. Part 2 (chapters 7–11) focuses on major changes that have occurred in the television sector since the ¤rst commercial channel began broadcasting in 1989. It looks at how globalization and deregulation have impacted the historical role of television as a medium for the construction of Indonesian national cultural identity.

Chapter 6 outlines the distinctive culture of news programming in Indonesia. In a detailed study of national news bulletins, the ritual character of the news is emphasized. The national news is understood as a ritual that represents the nation as a uni¤ed community, a community that is peaceful, committed to development, and organized socially as a hierarchy in which state of¤cials occupy dominant positions. Chapters 4, 5, and 6 may be read together as an exploration of the idealization of the Indonesian subject in three progressively more inclusive “families”: the domestic family of young children, the neighborhood family as a community of adults who share and cooperate in life, and the national family, a totalizing construct that imagines the great diversity of Indonesian social and cultural formations as an organic whole.
