Synopsis from Amazon:

“Look-in”, aka “Junior TVTimes”, was the essential subscription for children growing up in Britain in the 1970s. It offered behind-the-scenes glimpses of their favourite TV shows, interviews with stars, pin-ups and TV spin-off picture-strip adventures. With exciting installments of “Black Beauty”, “The Six Million Dollar Man”, and “Sapphire and Steele”, hilarious “Robin’s Nest”, “On The Buses” and “Please Sir!” picture strips, features on “TisWas,” “Junior Show Time” and “How”, an exclusive Roger Moore interview and pin-up and much, much more, this compulsive book takes you back to a time when we had three TV channels, we listened to LPs and singles on our record players, our crackly transistors were tuned to 275/285m Medium Wave for Radio 1, and the Bionic Man could have all that work done for a mere $6m.

Pardon my retro but I bought “Look-In” from its first issue in January 1971 until the early 80s, even though I was latterly too old.

This complilation book is out in September and the cover is styled from it’s heyday with Arnaldo Putzu paintings of contemporary stars. Editor is Graham Kibble-White of ‘OffTheTelly‘ fame.

Just bliss!
