Watched by a weekly audience of close to half-a-million, their films ranged from comedy to cliffhanger serials and distinctive sixty-minute features, and encapsulated a changing Britain - from post-war streets with deferential children in shirts and ties, to the high-rise landscapes of the 1970s with long-haired streetwise kids in tank-tops and jeans. Robert Shail provides the first comprehensive study of this much-loved organisation, offering detailed analysis of its key films, as well as interviews with behind-the-scenes personnel and reminiscences from audience members."" ;
