Cheers Mark, hope you enjoy the read. I've tried not to leave any stone unturned and to do (a) the series, (b) Brian and (c) the fans proud.
If I say so myself, there's a lot in there that would also likely appeal beyond THRILLER itself to anyone interested in the goings on of an internationally ambitious ITV company of the period.

If anyone would like a full chapter breakdown, detailing the content and structure of the book (as a Word file), I'd be happy to email it out to them.

Feel free to either screengrab the contents page or post the text here. Thriller isn't a series that I got into, but I'm sure there will be interest from others.

Thanks. The contents page merely lists the chapter headings ... so below I've copied the more detailed 'topics' file I worked to. This should give a better idea of both structure and overall content coverage. Anything needs clarifying or any burning questions, please feel free to ask.

Although it's not showing up as a banner on the site at the moment, to me at least ... I've just been kindly informed that the code TREAT15 is currently valid for a 15% discount.

This should cover any postage costs and maybe a touch more if anyone is pondering a purchase.

As I've received a few email enquiries about the book, I thought I might share some of the answers here in case others had similar questions.

Re: the structure, I've briefly referenced this in the introduction but basically the text can be read from 'cover to cover' as a chronology of the series but it is simultaneously a source guide and the chapter construction equally allows any particular aspect or topic to be referenced in isolation (or indeed ingnored should the reader be uninterested). The latter aspect should prove useful for checking any particular 'hard fact' e.g. recording dates, extended scenes, locations, overseas broadcasts etc.

The overall tone I've taken is far from 'solemn'. The text is fully referenced/credited (as footnotes) but, in keeping with the intent of the series itself not to mention Clemens' common approach to his narratives, it's hopefully a 'readable' rather than a dry or overly academic piece despite the amount of material therein and a thorough and comprehensive approach.

Alongside the 'hard informational' detail, there's considerable anecdotal comment throughout, courtesy of many of the interviewees. As a 'teaser' among many others these include:

• A run-in with the ‘Carnation Killer’ at a local filling station
• An erstwhile star of ‘West Side Story’ instigating an unusual routine at rehearsals
• The unexpected introduction to one of the US guest actors and his aftershave!
• Gathering in the Elstree dining area – and the resulting corked wine
• The smell of rotting vegetables permeating from an unexpected source

I hope that might be helpful.

Looks like a great book.

Did you find Norman Eshley in good health? I’ve always liked him as an actor and I’d heard he’d suffered head injuries in a car crash that kept him off the telly for a while.

Hi Ross

Thanks for your kind comments. I really tried to cover all the bases! There's a lot of background in there relating not just to 'Thriller' but the period of television in which it was made.

Yes, Norman was lucid and charming, just back from a trip abroad when we chatted back in 2018. We laughed over a particular scene he shot for 'Out' (Euston Films) alongside Brian Croucher. He's been fairly active in interviews in recent times that have appeared as blu-ray/DVD extras - e.g. the Indicator release of 'See No Evil'/'Blind Terror' (1971) as well as on Talking Pictures TV reminiscing about the history Elstree studios and working in TV generally.

He mentioned the car crash to me and how it basically ended his stage career as he was unable to 'hold' the dialogue required for a full theatre role. Other than that he was in very good form. Received a very nice email thanking me for 'a very pleasant interview'.

My copy arrived yesterday, wooo!

Had my customary flick through to start with, and it really look very good, obviously a labour of love and seems to be meticulously researched with VT numbers UK and US TX dates and recording dates, also lovely trivia sections and 'Also In Studio' sections telling you what was being made at Elstree at the same time.

Insightful quotes from many cast and crew members, the section on sorting out the Archive is fascinating, with a similar story to be told for me, about one of my fav episodes "One Deadly Owner".

Can't wait to get stuck into this one properly.

Lovely to see Mark enjoying the read so far and pointing out some of areas that should prove interesting to those interested in television of those times (and the way it was made) as well as the hardcore aficionados of the series. Many thanks.

Those multicamera studio productions of the day (more so than many of the more 'isolated' units of the filmed series) were always a part of the 'larger whole', amidst all the goings on at all those extremely busy studio centres around Britain at the time. The 'Also in Studio' sections for all 43 episodes really give a snapshot of the type and variety of production at ATV Elstree. Personal reminiscences extend from events in the canteen, star spotting Laurence Olivier, Danny Kaye and Julie Andrews, to production on the extensive backlot for programming ranging from 'Pipkins' to 'Clayhanger'.

As to Mark's fave 'One Deadly Owner', Jeremy Brett got the gig through a surprise intervention.

Early indications show the book has achieved sales beyond Britain and the US. I suppose reflecting the enormous international success of THRILLER itself, so far there has been also been interest from Australia, Canada, Denmark, Ireland and elsewhere. Thanks to all who have bought a copy and for publicity generated. Happy reading!

There's also a little more detail and a pic on the book interior at the following link ...

Smashing comments Mark, much appreciated.

And cheers for highlighting some of the sections that caught your eye. The 'Also in Studio' details are included for the recording days of all 43 stories. These studio shows were always a part of a 'greater whole' with cast and crew mixing with others in the canteen and bar who were working on different programmes simultaneously in the same studio centre. It's a part of the 'whole story' of 'Thriller' that I wanted to include from the outset.

As to 'One Deadly Owner', an interesting intervention got Jeremy Brett the gig on that one. Might never have happened with him!

There's also been a nice review on the 'Thriller' website homepage which gives a few more bits and pieces on the book and a couple of pics.

Yes, those were the great days when all the ITV studios, and of course Television Centre were Chock-a-block with programme production, it's always interesting to know what was being made at the same time.

Everyone had stories of star spotting during lunch breaks, such as on Thames TV's Hospitality Boat, with Sid James, Tommy Cooper, Edward Woodward and Barry Foster amongst the diners.

Marvellous indeed, or as Ian Hendry might have said "Perfect".

Hope you enjoy the read Simon, must thank you again for pointing me towards that analysis of Laurie Johnson's theme music to the series. For that and highlighting the coming up link caption used by Southern TV for the 80s repeats of the movie versions and your prompting the response of 'Time Screen' who published the great Ian Kerr article on the show, you have a grateful acknowledgement/credit in the book.

And what better way to cope with the dark winter months in a British lockdown than getting stuck into a meaty tome? For anyone ponder whether to take the plunge, lulu.com have another discount code currently in place until the close of tomorrow. AUTHOR10 (case sensitive) will achieve a 10% discount off the price.

Happy reading. As ever, any questions please feel free to wing them my way.

A wonderfully extensive review has now been posted on the book's page at lulu.

https://www.lulu.com/en/gb/shop/martin- ... qd6n5.html

And, from a satisfied customer (name withheld for privacy), here's a lovely email that I received today ...

Hi Martin, the THRILLER book arrived.
I'm glad I've got a strong postman. It's not a book, it's an event.
The rest of us have barely scratched the surface with Thriller, compared to your work here and this is only just my first impressions from a quick glance through it.
I very much, look forward to reading it properly.
I also really like the way you've laid the book out.
This will be the ultimate book on literally all things THRILLER.
Congratulations on a brilliant book, you should be so proud. For everyone in future this will be the go to source of reference.

Hi Simon.

Just checked, it's not come through (possibly sitting in your 'outbox' rather than 'sent'). I know from experience they can sit there for some time before arriving at their destination.

If it's urgent, you can email me direct at the address at the front of the book!

Cheers
Martin

If you are having problems with the PMs can you let me know - open a new thread - as I can try to investigate.

Admin have no way to check or tinker with individual users PMs so I can only test out using a dummy account. That isn't necessarily the same as normal use so it is difficult to spot any operating issues.

Check the sent folder and also check what number of PMs you have - I doubt it will have reached any limits, but it is always good to prune out the stuff that is no longer needed.
