The Rock and Roll Years, was arguably one of the best compilation series made by the BBC in the mid 1980s featuring music and archive footage starting from 1956-1989. My favorite parts were from 1966-70, because some of the most creative and enduring music was written and performed during that time. I actually watched the 1969 episode yesterday evening and I enjoyed it even though I have watched it many times before. The postwar era continues to be one of the most intriguing period of time and this series bears witness to that.
