Television is more interesting than people. If it were not we should have people standing in the corner of our room. Alan Coren

The whole country was tied together by radio. We all experienced the same heroes and comedians and singers. They were giants. Woody Allen

A 1926 Bull-Nose Morris, upholstered in leopardskin, stands in the driveway of a huge decaying mansion ... rats scamper across an empty swimming pool. A monocled Prussian butler attends his master, a once-great television star called Stanley Baxter.

From an opening of almost unbearable poignancy, we recapture the excitement of Baxter's triumphant comeback. At last we can savour, in words and pictures, some ot.hls memorable TV appearances. Not since the Yellow Pages has there been such an unprecedented list of names.

While Baxter's career has been documented in newspapers and magazines, Stanley Baxter on Screen probes deeper. For the first time we strip the gauze from the camera lens to reveal Baxter the Man. Until now this phenomenal entertainer has remained a mysterious, elusive individual who shuns the glare of public life and jealously guards the dark secret of his calorie count. Sometimes his fans catch a glimpse of a solitary figure in a floppy hat and dark glasses. They clamour for autographs and are sadly disillusioned to find that it is not Baxter at all, but a kindred spirit called Garbo.

Ken Hoare, who has written many Baxter programmes, has researched his subject well. He has spoken to authoritative sources, tracking them down in film archives, bus queues and launderettes, and persuading them to talk to him about their favourite funny man. Nevertheless, books about Dick Emery and Benny Hill will have to wait.

Stanley Baxter thought it was vital to emphasize that the subject matter of this book, and the explicit photographs it contains, may be offensive to certain readers. "And if 'that doesn't push up the sales, nothing will!" he added. Stanley Baxter on Screen is a book to make voyeurs of us all.

Porridge is regarded by many critics as Britain's best sitcom and was an instant hit when the pilot appeared on Britain's screens in 1973. Ronnie Barker and Richard Beckinsale were perfectly cast as the experienced lag and the naive first-time offender and their developing relationship had viewers gripped until Slade Prison closed its doors for the final time in 1977.

This is the first time the real story behind the muchloved series has been told. Written with the full backing of the show's writers, Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, this ultimate, fully illustrated companion reveals how they devised the idea and the inspiration behind the characters. It includes full actor profiles as well as interviews with the directors, other members of the production team and the actors, including Ronnie Barker. All 21 episodes are detailed in full, including cast lists, transmission dates, audience figures and plot summaries. Going Straight, the sequel to Porridge, is also extensively covered.

A must for all the millions of Porridge fans who want the inside story of this classic comedy.
