Who were Lost in Space? Where did The League of Gentlemen live? When did the Eurovision Song Contest begin? And what does a 'gaffer' actually do? "The Penguin TV Companion" - fully revised, updated and expanded - answers all of these questions, and thousands more. It includes: more than 2,300 programmes, with cast lists, transmission dates, detailed synopses and loads more, from Dallas to Downton Abbey, Porridge to Peep Show and The Woodentops to The Wire; and more than 1,500 entries for major TV people - actors, writers, producers and others, from Des O'Connor to Dermot O'Leary, Joanna Lumley to Nigella Lawson and Harry Corbett to James Corden. In this title: technical terms are explained; major broadcasters are profiled; new star ratings, revealing the best, and the worst, of seventy-five years of viewing are included; and, DVD availability highlighted. This is the most comprehensive and addictive book on television you could ever want.
