This is an auction for NEW ZEALAND TELEVISION: THE FIRST 25 YEARS, by Robert Boyd-Bell.

"Graham Kerr and Alma Johnston, Ray Columbus and Shirley Maddock, Lassie and Perry Mason, Brian Edwards and Ian Cross – the personalities and the programmes we will never forget. When television entered our living rooms it changed our lives. The assassination of John F Kennedy, the first man on the moon, the Olympics – the passage of flickering on our screens. This book is a detailed celebration of television’s first twenty-five years in this country. Year by year it plots the local growth of the most exciting and pervasive medium of our times, from the first primitive experiments to the uncertainties of the eighties. Robert Boyd-Bell offers here his own fascinating insight into what went on behind the scenes, spicing his account of the growth of the industry with many anecdotes of the people who made it happen. There are sections on news and current affairs, light entertainment, drama, sport as well as the award winners and the top-rating programmes.”
