Customer Review

on 23 March 2000
If you're a forty-something who grew up in Britain durng the Sixties and Seventies, then you really have to read this book. The author will have you wallowing in nostalgia for the days when you ate baked beans on toast in front of "Nationwide" or hooted with laughter when Mr Grainger voiced his desire to takes his elderly wife to Wales - to Bangor (it's all in the enunciation). In addition to the joys of trawling through the archives of our own TV memories there are some sharp observations on the culture of the time.
This is a book which enveloped me in a warm glow and opened my eyes to more than a few double entendres which went over my head at the time. If you can't persuade someone to buy it as a present for you, dig deep and find the cash to buy it yourself - you'll be glad you did.
