Product description

Fifty years ago, production began on "The Avengers", a TV series that has yet to be rivalled for its wit, adventure and sheer style. Here, thanks to unprecedented access to the show's archive, is a glorious visual celebration of the show that defined 60s television, packed with rare and previously unpublished photographs, and memories from the cast and crew.

Review quote

"* "The Avengers exhibited more style and daring than is to be had on all of Milan's runways, and more wit and winks... than the oeuvres of Oscar Wilde and Monty Python combined." - The New York Times * "Exudes more sheer sexuality than American TV has previously handled... It's all high-wire melodrama, good-humoured fetishism and flamboyant self-mockery." - Playboy"
