It's a TV jungle out there. Five terrestrial channels, 20 more on satellite/cable, more if you have the technology. What you need is a guide through the tangled forbidding forest of multi-channel, non-stop, viewer-hungry TV. And here it is. At the flick of a page, look up the programme, read a critical overview, peruse the cast. You can, for greater viewing safety, cross-reference artists and behind-camera crew (credits include producers, directors, writers) and checkout their back catalogue. Then amaze the rest of the sofa with your erudition, before dazzling them with your grasp of totally useless trivia. So, what's included and what's not? Chronologically, the Ultimate TV Guide spans 1946 - the oldest programme is Muffin The Mule - to the present, from the age of black and white nostalgia to the hi-tech high-definition present. There's no news, no documentaries (apologies, no space). All forms of TV fiction are covered - crime, westerns, sci-fi, soaps, comedy, adventure, horror along with children's TV and light entertainment (quizzes, games shows). Of these the authors have collected the classics, the innovators, the lost treasures, the obscure objects of cult desire, the hits - the shows in short, of screen note. Even if it's only because, like the BBC's sand-and-sangria melodrama Eldorado, they were such total turkeys. And, why not, they've also put in a few because they like 'em, and so should you. (The sci-fi 'Japanimation' The Guyver comes to mind). All have been broadcast in the UK. Completely updated.

For the few hundred television viewers in 1946, a special treat on the broadcast schedule was the variety show called Hour Glass. It was the first TV program to go beyond talking heads, cooking demonstrations, and sporting events, featuring instead dancers, comics, singers, and long commercials for its sponsor, Chase and Sanborn coffee. Within two years, another variety show, Texaco Star Theatre, became the first true television hit and would be credited with the sales of thousands of television sets. The variety show formula was a staple of television in its first 30 years, in part because it lent itself to a medium where everything had to be live and preferably inside a studio. Most of the early television stars—including Jackie Gleason, Milton Berle, Sid Caesar, Ed Sullivan, Red Skelton, Dinah Shore, and Arthur Godfrey—rose to prominence through weekly variety shows. In the 1960s, major stars such as Jerry Lewis, Dean Martin, Judy Garland and Danny Kaye were hosting variety shows. By the 1970s, the format was giving way to sitcoms and dramas, but pop music stars Sonny and Cher, Tony Orlando and Dawn, and Donny and Marie Osmond hosted some of the last of the species. This book details 57 variety shows from the 1940s through the 1990s. A history of each show is first provided, followed by a brief look at each episode. Air date, guest stars, sketches performed, and a listing of songs featured are included.

When the space drama Battlestar Galactica debuted on ABC in 1978, it was expected to be the most popular new program of the year. Instead, it was attacked as a Star Wars rip-off and canceled after a mere 17 stories. The author acknowledges the show was full of dramatic clichés and scientific inaccuracies, but despite these shortcomings, Battlestar Galactica was a dramatically resonant series full of unique and individual characters, such as Commander Adama (Lorne Greene) and ace warrior Captain Apollo (Richard Hatch). The author contends that Battlestar Galactica was a memorable attempt to make science fiction accessible to mainstream television audiences. The brilliant work of artist John Dykstra brought a new world of special effects to network television. Battlestar Galactica also skillfully exploited legends and names from both the Bible and ancient mythology, which added a layer of depth and maturity to the weekly drama.
