Take a nostalgic trip through 70 years of television with the third edition of 'The Penguin TV Companion'. From Little House on the Prairie to Little Britain, The X Files to The X Factor, and Department S to Desperate Housewives, no other book on television is as comprehensive, or addictive.
It covers 2,200 programmes with full cast lists, transmission dates and detailed lively synopses.
More than 1,500 entries for major TV people -- actors, writers, producers and others: from Lew Grade to Ricky Gervais, David Coleman to Simon Cowell, and Chris Tarrant to David Tennant.
New star ratings, revealing the best, and the worst, of 70 years of viewing.
DVD availability included for the first time.
So whether you want to know whose singing made the customers in 'Allo 'Allo fill their ears with cheese , when was That Was The Week That Was? or who Santa's Little Helper is -- this is the book for you.
