Reminisce about the shows you loved with this hilarious guide to the nation's best-loved telly programmes. Saturday night is the happiest night of the week. Most of us have fond memories of sitting on the floor in front of the telly with our family crowding out the sofa behind us.

Meanwhile, Mum's just enjoying some honest-to-goodness, clean entertainment. As for you, there's no school tomorrow, you're allowed to stay up late, and a whole feast of treats is about to unfold on the box -what could be better?In this witty and nostalgic romp through the highlights and lowlights of Saturday night telly, Jack Kibble-White and Steve Williams remind us of the great, the iconic, the hilarious and the just plain embarrassing moments that have made Saturday night television so entertaining. With a foreword from Jeremy Beadle and a comprehensive list of classic comedy, drama, entertainment, game shows and people shows, this is a must-read for true TV buffs and the perfect gift for nostalgia fans.
