Most of us have grown up in front of the television, entertained, educated and befriended by all those presenters, comedians and stars. They have become icons in our culture and figures in our own life stories.
In this book John Minnion draws scenes from the screen including caricatures of eighty or so TV personalities. And Lynne Truss looks back with affection and humour over five decades in front of the gogglebox, including several years as television critic of The Times.
