    schema:reviewBody ""Sir Jeremy Isaacs has been at the forefront of British television for more than forty-five years. Over the course of his extraordinary career he has witnessed, and sometimes instigated, the major changes that won it great acclaim and made it a powerful cultural force." "From Sidney Bernstein's Granada to Ted Turner's CNN, he has brought energy and innovation to the screen. He edited ITV's This Week and the BBC's Panorama, produced the celebrated series The World at War, brought in The Sweeney and commissioned The Naked Civil Servant. As the first Chief Executive of Channel Four, he engineered a deliberately eclectic mix of programmes and put production into the hands of small, independent film-makers. Subsequently, he was appointed General Director of the Royal Opera House and he started Sky's Artsworld channel." "Restless, fast-moving, relentlessly inventive, in many ways Isaacs reflects the industry he serves, and the story of his career is a chronicle of the last half-century. Through his work he has captured the political and social upheavals of modern times with a keen and unflinching eye, from conflict in Northern Ireland to the Cold War. He has challenged censorship and championed freedom of expression." "In this highly personal account, taking us behind the scenes of programme-making, Isaacs describes the television industry and its personalities with wit and candour. The result is a fascinating - and sometimes controversial - view of broadcasting."--BOOK JACKET." ;
