Overview

This movie and media memoir by Film Historian and former BBC TV Producer Barry Brown opens in Sydney, Australia 1930s where his lifelong interest in Hollywood began. This led to a 40 year career in radio and television, first with ABC Australia and later the BBC in London.

Through anecdotes and much name-dropping, he provides an insight into five decades of media history, explaining how radio and TV programmes are produced and how huge advances in broadcasting technology have altered the face of broadcasting.

Barry has always been starstruck so in this book he shares with readers his memories of meeting such Hollywood stars as Bette Davis, Gene Kelly, Ingrid Bergman, Danny Kaye, Jospeh Cotten, Kathryn Grayson, Kirk Douglas, David Niven, Clint Eastwood and such British stars as Laurence Olivier, Dirk Bogarde, Diana Dors, Michael Caine, Sean Connery, Oliver Reed and Alfred Hitchcock - the list is endless.

'Stars In My Eyes' also regales readers with stories about the many years Barry Brown spent as producer of 'Film Night' on BBC2 and Barry Norman's weekly film programme on BBC1.
