Jonathan Conlin draws on interviews with the original crew and archival research to reveal a series that combined scepticism towards traditional ideas of progress with an inclusive approach to its audience.

Newspapers & Magazines
'The first of a new genre - a fascinating assessment of a television series made soon enough to record the intentions and experiences of its makers yet distant enough to assess its place in cultural history.' - Sir David Attenborough 'Jonathan Conlin's succinct and elegant monograph describes the phenomenon in both width and depth...a fascinating account of the series' intellectual background.' - Rupert Christiansen, The Spectator
