I present an simple, introductory review text, focusing on recent deep field studies using radio telescopes, including high-resolution, wide-field VLBI observations. The nature of the faint radio source population is discussed, taking into account complimentary data and results that are now available via the sub-mm, IR, optical and X-ray wave-bands. New developments regarding the increased sensitivity of VLBI and an expansion in the instruments field-of-view are also presented. VLBI may be an important tool in recognising distant, obscured AGN from the “contaminant” star forming galaxies that now dominate lower-resolution, sub-arcsecond and arcsecond radio observations.
