Shelves: 2015-read
Whilst comprehensive in the amount of material represented, the author seems overly fond of portraying himself in a mildly acerbic and cynical manner, whilst attempting to convey some sort of pseudo erudite humour. Failure all round sire.
A shame as it had all the makings of a positively interesting read. Instead it came over as rather half-arsed and not really enthusiastic about his subject, more a rote compilation of a volume to pay the rent.

Shelves: film-tv
Distinct over-use of the word "avuncular". Also quite repetitive in the fact that paragraphs on certain characters were re-used in the description of the programme they starred in.
Some glaring omissions too (in my opinion); a mere four lines on Count Duckula, with no mention of Nanny and Igor ?
However, a well-written and informative read full of nostalgia.

Great fun, a thorough run-through of childrens TV from the 60s through - a real gem for nostalgia-heads such as myself. Highly recommended.
