All in the Best Possible Taste : Growing Up Watching Telly in the Eighties Paperback
by Tom Bromley
It's the early 1980s and TV-land is a weird place to be . . . There are only three channels! Everything stops at midnight! There's no Breakfast TV, no daytime telly . . . and the biggest prize on TV is not Chris Tarrant's million pounds but a speedboat on Bullseye.
As Tom Bromley suggests in this hilariously funny and entertaining walk down memory lane, all that was about to change.
Coming our way were new channels, 'yoof' TV, Dynasty, Dallas, TV-AM, Charles and Di, Scott and Charlene, talking cars and a Royal It's a Knockout.
By the end of the decade we were primed and ready for satellite TV, multi-channels, rolling news and incredibly . . . you could watch TV all the way through the night!And no-one felt this change more deeply than Tom Bromley.
From Fame to the Falklands War, Live Aid to Loadsamoney, All in the Best Possible Tastetells the story of a childhood spent with his mum, dad and three siblings and that other all-important family member; the TV.
