Lots of money hunting; few stories or stars
It turns out that most of Eaton's job consisted of begging for money to keep Masterpiece Theatre on the air. As a result, only a few of the many programs get much attention (Downton Abbey is an exception), and there are few portraits of the many fine actors who have appeared on the program. I was hoping for more about those topics, but if she is out hunting money, she probably didn't have time to become deeply involved in making the shows. Eaton is a charming writer, and she had one of those rare creatures, a competent copyeditor. An interesting look at how public television works.

I really enjoyed this book about the wonderful Masterpiece Theatre and Masterpiece. I learned a great deal about Alistair Cooke which I really liked to know. Truly a labor of love for the author who devoted so many years to the programming. The added perks of meeting and getting to know many talented writers, actors and celebraties. A good read.
