Blue Peter Diaries

blue_peter_diaries.jpg

by Richard Marson

 

Blue Peter is the world’s longest-running children’s programme, launched by the BBC in 1958. Richard Marson worked on the iconic series for ten years, four of them as Editor. On the eve of the show’s diamond anniversary, The Blue Peter Diaries offer a fascinating insight into its production, taking the lid off the fun and frustrations of one of the BBC’s top jobs. Packed with compelling behind-the-scenes stories of filming all over the world, and of the many extraordinary characters he met along the way, the thrill (and occasional disasters) of live television, as well as frank accounts of television power games, the coming and goings of presenters and pets, and his own dramatic departure from the show.

 

Feedback for The Blue Peter Diaries:

 

Simon Thomas (1999-2005) ‘Reading these diaries brought many wonderful memories flooding back, as well as telling me loads I never knew about the inside workings of Blue Peter. A heartfelt, humorous, belter of a read!’

 

Stuart Miles (1994-1999) ‘This book transported me back to the studio floor, the buzz of live TV and all the behind the scenes gossip. I raced through the diaries in a couple of days and just couldn't put them down. With hilarious honesty Richard made me laugh so much and, in the end, cry too.’

 

Gethin Jones (2005-2008) ‘After all these years, it’s amazing - and a bit surreal - to get the chance to read chunks of it. I found it fascinating. It takes you right behind the scenes. Sometimes it’s hilariously funny, sometimes really sad. If you’ve ever wanted to know more about life in TV, the highs and the lows, this is the book for you.’

 

Konnie Huq (1997-2008) ‘I love the way Rich writes, it’s so compelling and addictive, just makes you want to keep on reading...’

 

Andy Akinwolere (2006-2011) ‘Reading the diaries has been enlightening, understanding the trials and tribulations faced when you’re in charge of such a huge brand. Thought provoking as well as funny’

Hooded Man Volume 1: Robin of Loxley

hooded_man_1.jpg

By Andrew Orton, foreword by producer Esta Charkham

 

‘In the days of the Lion spawned of the Devil’s Brood, the Hooded Man shall come to the forest. There he will meet Herne the Hunter, Lord of the Trees, and be his son and do his bidding. The Powers of Light and Darkness shall be strong within him. And the guilty shall tremble.’

 

With its distinctive mixture of history and mythology, Robin of Sherwood was an innovative treatment of the Robin Hood legend. Broadcast on ITV between 1984 and 1986, the series has been a major influence on later versions of the Robin Hood story.

 

Now for the first time, a guide to the series in two volumes, from its beginnings in fifteenth century ballads of Robin Hood to its modern tale of a band of guerrillas striking from their forest hideout.

 

Hooded Man Volume One takes a fresh look at each episode starring Michael Praed. It explores the production of the first two series and the legends, literature and history that influenced them. On the way you’ll find new trivia, goofs, quotes and translations, a comprehensive atlas of filming locations and the full story of the creation of the series.

 

Hooded Man is an essential guide for every true fan of the series, detailing everything you might have missed along the way… because nothing is ever forgotten.

Myth Makers: Michael Keating

Myth_makers_michael_keating.jpg

Michael Keating's acting career began in 1966. One of his first notable roles was as Goudry in a 1977 Doctor Who story, entitled The Sun Makers. Just over a month later, he first appeared in the role of Vila Restal in Blake's 7. Vila Restal was the only character to appear in all fifty-two episodes of the series. In 1981, Michael appeared in an episode of the BBC sitcom Yes Minister entitled The Death List, playing the role of Police Constable Ross.

 

Some years later Michael Keating reunited with his Blake's 7 co-star Gareth Thomas, in an episode of the BBC drama series Casualty. In 2004, he returned to the Doctor Who franchise, guest starring as Major Koth in the Big Finish Productions audio adventure The Twilight Kingdom. In 2006, he starred in another Doctor Who audio adventure, this time as Inspector Chardalot in Year of the Pig. In 2009, he had a brief role in the BBC one-off drama Micro Men about the rise of the British home computer market in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

 

This is an extended version of the interview which will feature as part of the Blakes Seven compilation disc out in September.

Black Archive 20: Face the Raven

black_archive_face_the_raven.jpg

In a series where violent death is prevalent but the regular characters generally immune, Face the Raven (2015) is a rarity in featuring the demise of the 12th Doctor’s longstanding companion Clara Oswald. While Doctor Who’s basis as a time-travel series means that the audience will see Clara again, everything after her death here is borrowed time.

 

The figures reintroduced by Face the Raven all play unexpected parts: Ashildr, a Viking woman made immortal by the Doctor, is a mayor; Rigsy, a graffiti artist befriended by Clara, is a murder suspect; and numerous monsters from the series’ past have become refugees. Scripted by Sarah Dollard, an Australian living in the UK, the story uses the tropes and imagery of Doctor Who to comment on real-world issues of immigration, asylum and the penal system, its narrative leading directly to the Doctor’s own incarceration in the following episode.

 

This Black Archive draws on the history of London and its presentation in fantasy, on queer and feminist theory and on the mythic and folkloric symbolism of ravens to examine this haunting story. It is the first of three books dealing with the final episodes of the 2015 season of Doctor Who.

Fourth Doctor Adventures Volume 2

fourth_doctor_adventures_2.jpg

This set contains:

 

7.5 The Shadow of London by Justin Richards

The TARDIS materialises in the backstreets of London in the 1940s. Whilst K9 entertains himself in the time ship's library, the Doctor takes Leela for a walk in the streets.

 

But England’s capital is oddly quiet. There are no cars and very few pedestrians... whilst those people they do meet appear really quite English indeed. And all the while they are monitored by cameras feeding images into a secret control room.

 

Something strange is happening in the city. Traitors are running wild... and nothing and no-one are quite as they seem.

 

7.6 The Bad Penny by Dan Starkey

In the 1970s, hotelier Ron Tulip is having a difficult time. Many of his customers seem to be absconding without payment. The few who remain complain of strange noises and terrible sleep. And to top it all he’s just been summoned to the VIP suite... which is something of a problem as he didn’t even realise the hotel had one.

 

When turbulence in time takes the TARDIS off course, the Doctor and Leela find themselves visiting the same establishment and in the middle of a temporal paradox and a terrible plan.

 

Because that’s the thing about the Cross-Keys hotel.

 

You can check in... but you can never leave.

 

7.7 Kill the Doctor! by Guy Adams

The TARDIS crew arrive on the planet Drummond, an Earth colony in the far future where everybody uses handheld computers from morning to night. Rania Chuma is the mastermind behind Rene.net, the datastream network that tells you everything you need to know. Anyone who’s anyone uses Rene.net.

 

But ever since Rania was young she’s heard a voice in her head. That voice is the key to Rene.net’s success. And it’s a voice the Doctor might find familiar.

 

Whilst Leela chases a thief, the Doctor looks into the planet’s datastream and something evil looks back. A subliminal command flashes through Rene.net to Drummond’s entire population: ‘Kill the Doctor’. When the entire planet is against you, where can you possibly hide?

 

7.8 The Age of Sutekh by Guy Adams

The world has changed. And the evil Osiran Sutekh is returning.

 

As blood sacrifices and worship boost the strength of the God of War, servicer robots walk the streets, killing those who have not converted.

 

Leela is working with the homeless population of the city, while the Doctor co-operates with the police.

 

A brutal battle is ready to begin. And if the Doctor and his friends fail, everyone in the galaxy will perish.

Star Cops: Mother Earth Part 1

star_cops_mother_earth_1.jpg

It’s the near future, and mankind has expanded its presence in space. Maintaining law and order among this network of space stations, satellites and moon outposts is the responsibility of the International Space Police Force, known colloquially as the Star Cops. Their leader is Commander Nathan Spring.

 

While dealing with crimes including drug smuggling and murder, the Star Cops find themselves facing a new and sustained threat. The activist group Mother Earth, ideologically opposed to humanity’s presence in space, has been quiet for some time. But no longer. The group returns with a vengeance, prepared it seems to go to any lengths to achieve its aims.

 

1.1 One of Our Cops is Missing by Andrew Smith

As construction of the Vasco da Gama, the largest space station ever put into orbit, nears completion, Nathan is visited by an old friend, who asks for his help in tracking down a missing undercover officer.

 

Meanwhile, Inspector Priya Basu is investigating a near-fatal spacewalk accident on the space station Rakesh Sharma that may be no accident at all.

 

1.2 Tranquillity and Other Illusions by Ian Potter

A murder at the historic scene of the first Apollo moon landing offers few clues for the Star Cops. Why would anyone want to kill Philip Hughes, a property entrepreneur? And what has become of the mysterious woman who was with him at the time? The investigation leads to a moon outpost, where anyone may be the killer.

 

1.3 Lockdown by Christopher Hatherall

Tech Tower is a state of the art, high-security, high-technology building located in Paris. It seems the ideal venue for an international conference on how to counter the growing threat from the Mother Earth group.

 

Nathan and Priya attend as representatives of space policing. Soon, they and everyone else in the building find themselves in danger as a disruptive attack by Mother Earth coincides with a plot by criminals to carry out a high stakes robbery.

 

1.4 The Thousand Ton Bomb by Guy Adams

A failed bombing of Moonbase provides the Star Cops with an opportunity to strike back at Mother Earth. Paul Bailey is called on to use his undercover skills once more.

 

But Mother Earth is about to escalate its campaign of violence with a spectacular attack. And the Star Cops are among those in the firing line.
