“Dah, Dah, Dah, Daaah!” went the opening bars of This Is Your Life’s theme tune. When those notes started up it was after Eamonn Andrews had taken off the false moustache/preposterous “disguise” and, er, revealed himself to the celebrity he was about to spend the next half hour embarrasing with guests and biographical details.
This Is Your Life was essential viewing in 1970s Britain and this tie-in book features Paul McCartney, Earl Mountbatten, Matt Busby, Sheila Hancock and more. It’s INSCRIBED by Eamonn to Bob “I’ll have a P please” Holness, who presented teenage quiz Blockbusters for many years. First edition. Everest Books, 1978. 24cm by 16cm green boards, 189 pages, filled with black and white photos.
