Editorial Reviews


Not the least of this very readable book's main virtues is that it tells us so much about the country that created the BBC as well as the public service broadcaster itself ... a book that is both hugely entertaining and wise. -- Chris Patten * Financial Times * The best argument I have read in favour of the BBC. -- Nick Fraser * Observer * This is a rich and essential history. -- Peter J. Conradi * Spectator * Essential reading for anyone concerned, in any way, about the future of the BBC. -- Graham McCann * TLS * [Seaton] writes in prose that would have impressed Orwell himself. Unsentimental, robust, devoid of jargon, and clear as hell, Pinkoes and Traitors demands what Orwell himself asks of us: to stand outside. Look around. Assess. And tell it like it is in an English as direct as you can. Like Orwell's work, Pinkoes and Traitors makes you walk out into the world and see the familiar anew. -- Bonnie Greer * The Independent *
