This is an entertaining and engaging tale of the start of how time and television met at the right moment to foster Masterpiece Theatre. Great fun to hear of who turned down what future classic and who took a chance and made entertainment history. Of course, I am listening to the audiobook in the car and thus will retain nothing. Also, Eaton relates many key players’ stories through what sound like first-person quotes. It is often very difficult to tell whose anecdote is being shared. Small quibbles. I’m in for the atmosphere while I wait for Downton Season 4.
