Before the Internet and the rise of scholarship on popular culture, Vincent Terrace built his reputation as one of the leading researchers in television reference. This work represents decades of research and spans the entire history of television. While documentation regarding cast and personnel is now often found online, descriptions of the shows from authoritative sources are still not widely available. Terrace fills that gap with this work, which covers more than 9,350 shows (including pilots!) and constitutes the most comprehensive documentation of television series ever published. All the traditional genres are here along with show genres not well covered elsewhere-including children's programming, talk and advice shows, game shows, opera, stage plays, women's programming, dance, documentary television, and more.
