German sport c.1920-c.1960: media entertainment in four political systems

This project explores the relationship between sport and the media in Germany under the conditions of the Weimar Republic, National Socialism and the first decade of East and West Germany respectively. It will comprehensively examine sports coverage in German newspapers, illustrated magazines, sports journals, radio, newsreel, film and television, studying the range and nature of the coverage, its relation to sports bodies and consumers, and its institutional underpinning. In so doing, it aims to understand the success of modern sport regardless of dramatic political ruptures.
