The famous television game show ‘Jeux Sans Frontières’ was broadcast in Eurovision between 1965 and 1999, and produced a wealth of materials – images, photographs, ephemera, memorabilia – which were collected by archivist Gianni Magrin, who often participated behind the scenes of the live events.
The idea of a democratic coalition based on sports and games began to take shape within a context of distinct national identities and the spread of television across Europe.
This book offers a comparative study involving the community spirit of a number of countries such as France, Germany, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Yugoslavia, Portugal, and Greece.
