A great series detailing the news and hits of each year since the birth of rock 'n' roll.
11 June 2005 | by Freddy_NewendykeSee all my reviews

This British series has an episode for each year since I believe 1954, overlaying news footage with some great music. Although the pace of the programme may seem a little slow now, the way it was put together was still brilliant. Some of the footage is really funny, some really moving, and I just love the music they use. The focus is obviously British events, but they cover some conflicts from around the world that I'd never heard much about before, not being alive at the time. Whilst it is amusingly clear that British society has changed a lot when you watch the 1950s and 1960s episodes (the police uniforms stand out particularly for me as seeming very staid when compared with todays, and some of the comments by teenagers about bands like the Beatles are priceless), all the footage of the wars and disasters shows that not much has changed. It's also clear that music was so much better then. With the plethora of nostalgic clip shows around at the moment, the quality of this really shines through. There's no talking head minor celebrities trying to be funny by belittling the crazes and music of their childhood, just well-researched archive material. This is a family favourite, for my family at least.
