Blue Peter Diaries

blue_peter_diaries.jpg ? In Stock £17.99

Category: Cult Titles

by Richard Marson

 

Blue Peter is the world’s longest-running children’s programme, launched by the BBC in 1958. Richard Marson worked on the iconic series for ten years, four of them as Editor. On the eve of the show’s diamond anniversary, The Blue Peter Diaries offer a fascinating insight into its production, taking the lid off the fun and frustrations of one of the BBC’s top jobs. Packed with compelling behind-the-scenes stories of filming all over the world, and of the many extraordinary characters he met along the way, the thrill (and occasional disasters) of live television, as well as frank accounts of television power games, the coming and goings of presenters and pets, and his own dramatic departure from the show.

 

Feedback for The Blue Peter Diaries:

 

Simon Thomas (1999-2005) ‘Reading these diaries brought many wonderful memories flooding back, as well as telling me loads I never knew about the inside workings of Blue Peter. A heartfelt, humorous, belter of a read!’

 

Stuart Miles (1994-1999) ‘This book transported me back to the studio floor, the buzz of live TV and all the behind the scenes gossip. I raced through the diaries in a couple of days and just couldn't put them down. With hilarious honesty Richard made me laugh so much and, in the end, cry too.’

 

Gethin Jones (2005-2008) ‘After all these years, it’s amazing - and a bit surreal - to get the chance to read chunks of it. I found it fascinating. It takes you right behind the scenes. Sometimes it’s hilariously funny, sometimes really sad. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about life in TV, the highs and the lows, this is the book for you.’

 

Konnie Huq (1997-2008) ‘I love the way Rich writes, it’s so compelling and addictive, just makes you want to keep on reading...’

 

Andy Akinwolere (2006-2011) ‘Reading the diaries has been enlightening, understanding the trials and tribulations faced when you’re in charge of such a huge brand. Thought provoking as well as funny’

Hooded Man Volume 1: Robin of Loxley

hooded_man_1.jpg ? In Stock £19.99

Category: Cult Titles

By Andrew Orton, foreword by producer Esta Charkham

 

‘In the days of the Lion spawned of the Devil’s Brood, the Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet Herne the Hunter, Lord of the Trees, and be his son and do his bidding. The Powers of Light and Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble.’

 

With its distinctive mixture of history and mythology, Robin of Sherwood was an innovative treatment of the Robin Hood legend. Broadcast on ITV between 1984 and 1986, the series has been a major influence on later versions of the Robin Hood story.

 

Now for the first time, a guide to the series in two volumes, from its beginnings in fifteenth century ballads of Robin Hood to its modern tale of a band of guerrillas striking from their forest hideout.

 

Hooded Man Volume One takes a fresh look at each episode starring Michael Praed. It explores the production of the first two series and the legends, literature and history that influenced them. On the way you’ll find new trivia, goofs, quotes and translations, a comprehensive atlas of filming locations and the full story of the creation of the series.

 

Hooded Man is an essential guide for every true fan of the series, detailing everything you might have missed along the way… because nothing is ever forgotten.
