The radio imaging of M 87, combined with supporting data from other wavelength bands, suggest that the inner 2 kpc of M 87 are a region of transonic turbulence, dynamically important magnetic fields, and synchrotron emitting emitting filaments in a 107 K thermal plasma. The energy source for this activity is likely to be the black-hole driven jet which can be seen bending and mixing with the other radio emission from the region.
