Overview

YOU may not dare to admit it, but you probably have a weird and wonderful fascination for the Eurovision Song Contest. Well, it is now high time to come out, be proud and truly celebrate the United Kingdom's golden jubilee association with this annual musical phenomenon. And, at the same time, join in a little contemplation - where does the UK in Eurovision go from here? Flying The Flag affectionately captures the essence of a song fest which exudes a rare and not easily-defined appeal. The book is a light-touch examination of the UK's 50-year participation and spotlights the nation's successes and failures and also the countries that have lined up against us. It includes interviews with some of the major UK Eurovision acts over the years, features the contest likes and dislikes from fans near and far and debates the 21st century challenges facing this great institution with the offices of the European Broadcasting Union and the British Broadcasting Corporation. It's time to Fly The Flag for the good old Royaume-Uni!
