(p.147) Conclusion Television and the Afterlife of Apartheid
Starring Mandela and Cosby

This chapter summarizes the major findings and the theoretical themes of this work. Through an analysis of attempts to deal with television's apartheid past—including the transformation of broadcasting, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of South Africa's hearings on mass media in 1997, and the South African Human Rights Commission's inquiry into racism in the media in 2000—it assesses some of apartheid's historical continuities and discontinuities, while also considering their implications for the current and future relationships among globalization, transnational media flows, and processes of democratization.

Keywords:   South Africa, television, apartheid, broadcasting, racism, globalization, transnational media flows, democratization
