Ever since John Logie Baird first publicly demonstrated this now all-pervasive medium in his small Soho laboratory, the history of television has been littered with remarkable but true tales of the unexpected. Ranging from bizarre stories of actors' shenanigans behind the camera to strange but true executive and marketing decisions, and covering over 100 shows, series, and episodes, from behind and in front of the camera in British and American television studios, this book is the ultimate tome of TV trivia. From live TV suicide to Ricky Martin's disastrous candid camera-style episode involving a young female fan and serval cans of dog food, Television's Strangets Moments will keep you hooked, when there's nothing worth watching on the box.
