Grade 6-12-- This chock-full-of-facts book covers the history of television through entertaining anecdotes and up-to-date information. Every aspect of television is presented from its invention to what the future has in store. What's in between--situation comedies, drama, news, children's TV, advertising, cable, PBS, etc.--is well organized and refreshingly readable. The 12 chapters are peppered with photographs and quotes, and, most important, are written in a way that encourages students to think about related issues. Top-rated, prime-time programs; Emmy-award winners; and network and cable addresses are appended. A worthwhile resource for any library. --Judie Porter, Media Services Center, Portsmouth School Department, RI
