Description

Hannah Warner, author of Fascinating Celebrity Facts now brings us the ultimate feast of facts and trivia for TV addicts and celeb-watchers alike. This engrossing book throws open the behind-the-scenes world of TV: the shows and the stars. Square-eyed couch potatoes need look no further for curious facts and insights into their favourite shows from around the world. Examples: Ben Elton was the studio warm-up man on Blackadder II. The first episode of Columbo was directed by Steven Spielberg. Anthony Hopkins had a special part written for him in an episode of Only Fools and Horses, but was unable to appear as he was filming Silence of the Lambs. Each episode of The Simpsons contains about twenty-four thousand individual drawings [cels]. One episode takes six months to produce and costs USD1 million. More than one hundred episodes of Dr Who were destroyed by the BBC during the early 1970s to cut back on storage costs.show more
