|Plot Summary of TV's Biggest Hits: The Story of Television Themes from "Dragnet" to "Friends"|
|""TV's Biggest Hits" covers the history of musical composition for television, from its infancy in the 50's to the early 90's. Author Burlingame not only discusses the music behind the shows but also gives interesting anecdotes about its composers. Profiles of such known talents as Jerry Goldsmith, Lalo Schifrin, and Alex North, as well as lesser-known but just as capable musicians as W. G. Snuffy Walden fill the pages of this fascinating work. The book has ten chapters and each is devoted to a genre of television, from drama to comedy to miniseries to sci-fi/fantasy. Also included is a reference list of available recordings of television music."
