Excellent insight about the Golden Age of Television!
20 May 2003 | by andynortonukSee all my reviews

This 3 part documentary series about the Golden Age of Television was one of my favourite TV documentaries from 2002!

This is because of the many famous faces they had on discussing about this era in TV history was extraordinary. Cilla Black, Barry Cryer, Bruce Forsyth and even Simon Dee contributed to this project! But it was not just the celebrities they had on talking about the golden age of television, it was all those clips of popular shows from that era! Val Parnell's Sunday Night at the London Palladium, Steptoe and Son, That Was the Week That Was, Till Death Us Do Part, Dee Time, The Morcambe and Wise Show, The Simon Dee Show, and even the not-so politically correct The Benny Hill Show featured in the 3 hours worth of interesting history about this "Golden Age".

For someone who does not know about this part of TV history, like me for instance, this makes an introductory insight about this part of TV history. But for those that do know about the Golden Age of Television, it makes some good nostalgia to your knowledge that you already have of it. So ,there's something here for everyone here that won't be interesting from the documentary.

Overall, this gives excellent insight about the Golden Age of Television!
