Cover blurb:
"I've got a CV as long as your arm about things I've done in television... There's probably very few people who've got a CV as involved and different... I'm proud of that."

PETER PURVES is instantly recognised by millions as a presenter of children's and factual programmes, the most famous being BLUE PETER which he appeared in for over ten years.

What most people don't know is that PETER spent just as many years as an actor before BLUE PETER changed his life. One of those acting parts was as STEVEN TAYLOR in DOCTOR WHO.

From his newly renovated country home, PETER chats to NICHOLAS BRIGGS about his long and varied career including his casting in DOCTOR WHO, his frustration as the character was watered down and what it was like working alongside WILLIAM HARTNELL.

And now that PETER is a director himself, what does he feel about being behind the camera instead?
