A definitive work on British children's drama,
This review is from: The Hill and Beyond: Children's Television Drama - An Encyclopedia (Paperback)
There have been plenty of books on classic children's TV that are the literary equivalent of a pub conversation - often trivial and riddled with inaccuracies, but here's the real deal. With The Hill and Beyond we have full episode guides for every British children's drama series from the '60s onwards, with a wealth of additional information, and lavish illustrations from stills of the shows to period delights like Look-In magazine front covers and paperback adaption covers. British TV has produced a wealth of gems in children's drama. Here the genre gets the unique and highly readable book it so richly deserves.
