Cover blurb:
“When I first showed the design to the lighting man he refused to light it! He said, ‘I can’t light that!’"

In the early days of television, designers were experimenting in a way that is difficult to comprehend today.

Black and white 405 line pictures, small studios, tiny budgets and ludicrous schedules all combined to challenge even the best designers at the BBC.

In this Myth Makers, Nicholas Briggs chats to Barry Newbery about those early days and the change to colour pictures in the late sixties.

Off and on, Barry worked on Doctor Who for over 20 years, from the very first story right through to The Awakening in 1984 and brings a unique perspective on the programme’s history.

Jam-packed with rare drawings and photographs of his designs plus some unique mementos, this is a vintage Myth Makers.
