Product description

Review

‘Norman writes with epigrammatic wit.’ The Times

‘This alternative history of the “idiot’s lantern” gathers a hundred programmes to chart eighty-odd years of televisual evolution: the early, chaotic years; the foolhardy, unselfconscious and creatively energetic years before commerce eventually knocked those fascinating corners off its character. At its best and at its worst, television is brutally honest and charmingly deceitful, sentimentally partisan and coldly dispassionate, obscenely lavish and ludicrously cheap. Its death has been predicted many times, but somehow it survives to this day.’

About the Author

Phil was a founding member of the TV Cream nostalgia website and has written several books on popular culture.
