La la la la la Look-innnnnnn,
This review is from: "Look-in": The Best of the Seventies (Hardcover)
Look-In, or the 'Junior TV Times' as it was dubbed when it first began it's career was a wonderful children's magazine, looking at the televisual output of ITV in (mainly) the 70s. It limped on through the 80s, and even into the 90s, but it is best remembered for riding the zeitgeist of the 70s, with iconic painted covers of the hip and fashionable of the time - TV programmes and pop culture of the day.
This tome includes articles and strips from 1971 to 1979, thus covering such luminaries as Catweazle, Timeslip, Ace of Wands, Magpie, The Bionic Man, Man about the House, The Bay City Rollers, ABBA, Dick Turpin, Worzel Gummidge, Sapphire and Steel etc. I remember some of the covers so very clearly, which is odd, as I haven't seen them in decades! As other reviewers have suggested, if a nice slice of deep fried nostalgia is your thing, and you grew up in flares on a chopper bike with a sherbert dip in your hand, then this book is for you; you'll love it.
