Blue Peter The Inside Story

£7.99

Product description

Blue Peter is more than a television programme, it is a national institution. Its phrases are part of the English language. "Here's one I made earlier " and "Now for something quite different" are everyday expressions, and everybody knows where they came from. For thirty years Blue Peter has been at the forefront of children's television and you can guess at the age of most adults by which pets and presenters they remember.
This is the inside story explaining the philosophy of a programme that has set the standard by which children's television is judged.
Biddy Baxter was Blue Peter's editor for twenty-six years and Edward Barnes was a Blue Peter director and producer before he became Head of BBC TV Children's Programmes. Together they laid the foundations for the programme that has won twenty-one major awards, raised millions of poundsfor charity and brought fame to presenters such as Valerie Singleton, John Noakes, Peter Duncan and Sarah Greene.
In front of the camera and behind the scenes, this is the story of Blue Peter.
This copy is in very good condition. There is some creasing to the top edge of the dust jacket, but the inner pages are clean and unmarked.
