... A definitive overview of the history of British breakfast television. OK, I have a vested interested in this book as I supplied the illustrations (the only thing about the whole project that anyone's ever criticised) - but, believe me, I'm not on a percentage or anything.
This is a gloriously well-researched and beautifully written account of 20 years of broadcasting. You don't have to be interested in GMTV to get something out of Morning Glory; it's a fine document of the television industry per se. Think Michael Leapman's The Last Days Of The Beeb meets Andrew Davidson's Under The Hammer. It's that good. Plus, Greg Dyke's in there.
I don't know why it's taken me so long to file a review of it, really.
