30 Years of British Television
About the Book
From the co-creator of British Television magazine comes the ultimate interview book for those of us with a penchant for the cheeky Whether you're one of those individuals who hunkers down in front of the television every Saturday night to get your fix of Britcoms courtesy of the local PBS station, or you're working your way through classic British shows one DVD at a time, chances are you know something about British television's golden age. Between 1970 and 2000, PBS and cable TV brought some of the finest British programs ever made to our shores, and with them, introduced us to actors, writers and producers who have gone on to become legends, even in homes thousands of miles from their own. 30 Years of British Television brings you interviews with 14 of those legends. Learn: * How Waiting For God's Stephanie Cole used her famous "Diana limp" to pinch the best parking spot at an airport * How much Are You Being Served's John Inman made in residuals (sort of) * What Rumpole of the Bailey creator John Mortimer said about U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Rehnquist that broke the ice with fans in Salt Lake City * What old detective series Keeping Up Appearances' Clive Swift really hopes does not make a comeback * What differences producers Sue and Beryl Vertue have encountered in making televisions shows on both sides of the Atlantic * And much, much more about stars of Monty Python's Flying Circus, The Good Neighbors and To the Manor Born, Taggart, Red Dwarf, Chef and 'Allo 'Allo
