By A Customer
Dished! is a fascinating look at the birth and short life of British Satellite Broadcasting, chronicled alongside the launch of its rivals, Sky TV. Genuinely fascinating and amusing, with many excellent insights into what it was like to "be there" at the time of the merger. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dished! 5 April 2009
Interesting to me as I was involved with the set-up of the original BSB, a specialist broadcasting book of what might have been rather than general interest
