Nice nostalgia piece - wished I had followed Look-in properly at the time,
This review is from: "Look-in": The Best of the Seventies (Hardcover)
I remember Look-in as a kid. Never bought it as I suppose I felt it was never my programmes. I bought this book last year as a present for a friend, but liked it so much I kept it. I have since the advent of video and particularly DVD become a fan of most of these series and, if you like, it squares the circle.
It is a large format (slightly larger than A4) sturdy hardback, with comic strips and articles. It also features adds from the time too. Whilst predominantly an ITV related publication I was pleased, for example, to see and example of an add for the Doctor Who Weetabix promotion.
This is the 'best of the 1970s'; as Look-in ran from 1971 to 1994, this is approximately 40% of its span. I don't usually like compendiums and the best of, because I want the whole thing, but I guess, every issue of Look-in is now an impracticality and a 'best of' is a sensible way to sample some tie-in TV nostalgia.
