    If you fondly remember the likes of the "Generation Game" (Bruce Forsyth and Larry Grayson eras, rather than Jim Davidson), "3-2-1" and so on, and were born in the mid-late 1960s or early 1970s you'll love this book. Perfect for dipping into for a quick burst of nostalgia, the book entertainingly describes pretty much every Saturday night TV show from the 1960s to the present day and is a hugely enjoyable read. Buy it in conjunction with the "TV Cream Toys" and "TV Cream" books and you'll be in If you fondly remember the likes of the "Generation Game" (Bruce Forsyth and Larry Grayson eras, rather than Jim Davidson), "3-2-1" and so on, and were born in the mid-late 1960s or early 1970s you'll love this book.

    A journey through the razzle-dazzling world of Saturday Night TV, from the thrills and spills of late fifties talents shows to the thrills and spills of the modern day, erm talent shows. Of course, there's more to Saturday Night TV than that; within the schedules you'll find shows as diverse as Robin Of Sherwood, 3-2-1, The Generation Game, Gladiators, Noel's House Party, Game For A Laugh, Doctor Who, The Paul Daniels Magic Show and the downright bewildering Trick Or Treat (and, erm, Jim'll Fix A journey through the razzle-dazzling world of Saturday Night TV, from the thrills and spills of late fifties talents shows to the thrills and spills of the modern day, erm talent shows.

The entertaining story of the highest concept, lowest common denominator shows in the history of TV. Oh and Parky.

    This book documents Saturday nights on British TV - from the horrors of Jim'll Fix It, the Black and White Minstrel Show and the gruesome Edmonds Trilogy (though there's no entry about the horrific Hit The Road, a '90s BBC1 show beginning with a silent S) to the great shows such as The Two Ronnies and Bob's Full House. Remarkably they manage to go through the entry about Gladiators without mentioning the legendary Jet.

    Another reliable edition from the TV Cream stable, this does exactly what it says - detailing Saturday night TV shows with a mini-essay or review. Some programmes were long-running, some were just for a few episodes, but all are dealt with thoroughly enough for the reader to remember them (bizarrely, the ones I’d forgotten were from the 90s/00s but, I suppose, by then I’d moved out of the demographic of watchers by then). A real treat and a wonderful trip down memory lane, I highly recommend thi Another reliable edition from the TV Cream stable, this does exactly what it says - detailing Saturday night TV shows with a mini-essay or review.
