From the back of the book:
When John Doyle was born in remote Tipperary Ireland's Catholic church was all-powerful, suspicious of the outside world and enjoining its civic piety. Then in 1961 television arrived, bringing westerns, hilarious sitcoms like "I Love Lucy" and car commercials. Soon Gay Byrne's "Late Late Show" was hosting outspoken discussions on sex and even criticism of the church.

Then when Doyle's family moved nearer Northern Ireland they could pick up the BBC, broadcasting institution of the English oppressors - but also, he discovered, responsible for "Monty Python" and live football with the peerless George Best. This is a touching story of how TV caused a social revolution, and liberated one man to enter the modern world.
