Format: Paperback
(Based on the first edition)
For any student of TV comedy, no other volume comes even close to the scale, authority and depth of this one. If it was on the box, it's in the book. I've owned it for five years and still find something new every time I pick it up. Deep respect.

What can I say? The guy from the Radio Times updates his encyclopedia of all comedy programmes screened on British television (and throwing justified disdain on American teen shows such as Saved By The Bell) and the result is both comprehensive and fascinating to anyone with even the slightest interest in comedy whether you prefer happy family watching (The Good Life, Dad's Army) or darker material (The League Of Gentlemen and, er... virtually anything Chris Morris has ever done).
Any downers? Not really... er, the book's quite heavy? You can't read all of the pages at once? It's a top purchase.

As a fairly bright American I have a great appreciation for British television and especially British comedy so when Santa put this book under the Christmas tree I found that I just couldn't stop reading. It is full of great information and quite comprehensive, I recommend it to anyone that loves to read about comedy programming the great, not so great and ones best forgotten !Now if only there was one that covered British radio programming and British television drama in the same way, I would be soooo happy.

A very comprehensive and entertaining guide to TV comedy. This secondhand issue was actually in very good condition and better than I had expected.
