5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!, 25 Oct. 2012
This review is from: Remembering Tenko: A Celebration of the Classic TV Drama Series (Paperback)
On every page of this book, you'll find three things:

1. an amazing new nugget of information
2. a memory from one of the cast
3. a really unique photo

For anyone who loves Tenko, or even for anyone who has fond memories of watching it thirty years ago, this book is a MUST HAVE! Information about filming in the jungle and about how Singapore was literally being knocked down around the cast's ears; stories about the women relying on each other for support in their personal lives; storylines that were abandoned or rewritten; the reasons why some characters were written out ... this book is as fascinating as the series itself.

A mention word for the huge range of photos. Taken from BBC and Radio Times archives, and from the cast and crew's own personal collections, the photos will make you gasp. The chance to see the actresses we all know and love, in all manner of unique situations (at a party; getting their make-up sorted; getting into a Tenko line-up) ... really amazing. Each time I turned a page, I was astounded to see such intimate, personal photos. So many pictures stick in the memory: the research and time that has gone in to gathering all of this together is remarkable.

It's well known that the women who made Tenko became friends for life, just as the characters on-screen did. This book tells the real story of the making of the show, and is told with all the love and care it deserves. Andy Priestner has done a remarkable job.

Really, I can't praise this book enough. If you love Tenko, you NEED to have a copy of the outstanding Remembering Tenko.

I've viewed your posts on Tenko elsewhere (eg IMDB) on many occasions and it's clear you are as keen a fan as I, perhaps more so. My wife and I have just finished our eleventh viewing and our fifteen year old son enjoyed it for the first time. The script is an old friend. My favourite two moments are both in Series 3 (Maggie putting Bristow in her box when she makes excuses for Beatrice; the shake of hands between Marion and Beatrice before the final tenko).
Just wondering if you've ever had any luck tracing Emily Bolton?
