Forbes Taylor was present during the founding stages of the mass-media world that younger readers now take for granted. As an accomplished film director who became a TV executive, he takes readers backstage during the glamorous golden years of the film industry and gives us the inside story of the creation of commercial television in the 1950s. As a maker of award-winning documentaries, he takes us around the world and back in time from filming at Stonehenge to the Middle East during the Six Day War.
