If you're an aspiring television or screenwriter, there's an excellent section in the back of the book that shows the genesis of an episode of Peepshow, including the original first draft, the notes and correspondence from their script supervisor and the folks at Channel 4, and then a revised draft, as well as the transcript of the actual final episode (earlier in the book).
I should note that I do say transcript, because I'm pretty sure what you're getting here are not the actual shooting scripts, as they seem to lack some stage direction. However, I may be mistaken and they might just figure out a lot of it on the fly, I've never actually seen one of their real shooting scripts to be certain of how these stack up.
I should also note that the scripts are in a dual-column layout in this book and are not written in some version of courier (they're in Helvetica or Arial or something). Again, I realize I am just being difficult here, but I thought I should make a note of it, since it is something that I would have been interested to know if I didn't own the book. However, it does not, in any way, detract from the actual content and it should not at all make you hesitate to purchase this book.
Finally, I'll point out that this book only goes up through series 6. This makes sense, since I'm pretty sure it was released before series 7, but still, just a heads up.
