Interview from '76, and he was dead right about the nasty crap that passed for entertainment during UK TV's so-called golden age. Yes there was some good stuff, but a lot less than some might think. His observation about UK TV's entrenched sexist and racist attitudes is a reminder that the US was waaay ahead of Britain in that respect at least.

I never believed all that gumpf about we having the best telly in the world, in the 70's or any other time. I was bought up on American TV in the late 50's & early 60's in London, Wagon Train, Maverick, Bilko, Dr. Killdare, tons of stuff. We have had some good & brilliant programs, but always few & far between. It's like that times a thousand now, all the good stuff coming from the US, I've given up on our drama's.
