This review is from: Nul Points (Paperback)
The British may pretend to have no time for Eurovision but it's always the Brits, I notice, behind the books, theatre pieces and TV documentaries about Eurovision. Usually the combination of this annual Euro-pop jamboree and British hack ends with tired old Eurosceptic cliches about 'Johnny foreigner', 'political voting' and 'awful' music. To his credit Tim Moore resists playing to the gallery in this way and has properly researched his subject matter. I'm relieved he got to this idea first ahead of a lesser writer who would have served up a lame, half-baked and misinformed dog's dinner of a book. Moore's work would translate into an excellent TV documentary but given the clueless BBC's attitude to the Contest, don't hold your breath. Meanwhile, thanks to the wonders of Youtube I'm off to check out the hapless nul pointers myself.
