From Publishers Weekly. When asked to prepare a TV series on 20th-century theater, Royal National Theatre directors Eyre, an accomplished stage director, and Wright, an actor and playwright, began by writing this book. Selective in focus, this illustrated volume is nonacademic and personal (even moody), with a distinct ability to point out the ridiculous. The authors do not pretend to have the last word; instead, they look at British and American theater obsessively, through the lens of the National Theatre and British pride.

My room is on the front at the top of a tall, west-facing Edwardian house in Brook Green. I can see Hammersmith, Chiswick, the arch of Wembley Stadium and, on a good day, some distant low hills. There are many distractions - street life, the back gardens, the rear windows, the sunsets - so perhaps it's just as well that I'm only an occasional writer. It's quiet but for the babble of chatter in the morning and mid-afternoon from the mothers and children at the French school at the end of the street. I requisitioned this room when my daughter, Lucy, left home about 10 years ago.

Sir Richard Eyre's distinguished career as a director encompasses both theatre and film. He ran the National Theatre in London for ten years and also created acclaimed productions of Guys and Dolls and Mary Poppins. For the big screen he's directed Notes on a Scandal and Iris. He talks to Mariella Frostrup about his five favourite books, and how they shaped his life. And Dr Sarah Dillon continues her series of close reading by turning her attention to Aldous Huxley and the opening of his novel Brave New World.

Charlie Burrows is under pressure. He made a ratings success of Acrobat TV, but now he is in a desperate battle for audiences against an aggressive new rival and the strain is starting to tell. With damaging leaks to the press, government interference and a fragile share price stalling Acrobat's recovery, relationships in the boardroom and studios take second place to reputations in a climactic race to save the company. THE CLUB will take you behind the studio doors to reveal what really goes on in Television and make you think again about the price of success
