After six years of development oriented television, villagers in rural Indonesia gained new knowledge about development programmes, increased their participation in community activities, and made more active use of rural markets and public financial institutions.

This book also reveals how information from television narrowed, rather than widened, the gaps between the lower and upper strata in rural Indonesia by helping those of lower education and lower economic status to learn about the outside world and raise their adoption of modern agricultural practices close to the level of that in the upper strata.
