There’s nothing better than putting your feet up after a long day and switching on the television to watch your favourite show. Immersed in a fictional world, you laugh and cry along with the characters, and then spend hours discussing the latest episode with your friends the next day.

But what did we do before the age of television? For children of the Baby Boom generation, life changed drastically overnight with the introduction of that little entertaining black box…

Now, Ian Collis takes readers on a colourful and nostalgic walk down memory lane with Retro TV. Showcasing glossy photographs of some of the best shows from the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, Collis provides a fantastic visual throwback to the ‘Golden Years’ of television. Shows range from variety shows to quiz shows, dramas, sitcoms, Western ‘horse operas’ and cop classics, and include timeless classics such as The Untouchables, The Ed Sullivan Show, Lost In Space and Bonanza.

Complete with essential information and little known facts to accompany the beautiful images of more than 200 shows, Retro TV is a celebration of the formative years of the ‘new medium’.
