The 70's

BBC 2 21:00-22:00

Just watched part 1 of 4 of this series about Britain in the 70's, great background music, T Rex, Bowie The Who, Zep etc.

Essential viewing for quite a lot of us.

The program is followed by Sounds of the 70's, 10 parts to this.

Loved how they were doing a piece on (West) Germany whilst playing "Sylvia" by Focus in the background ... that'll go down well with Dutch AND German viewers if the programme gets exported ... LOL

:doh:, but a great song and glad they put it in albeit wrongly.

I truly loved the Marc Bolin piece with "All The Young Dudes" over the top :doh:

In the program producers defence he'd know it wasn't Bolan and another great song to cover the glam rock piece.

I think there will be a lot of this going on were the songs must be heard but there is no story to tie them in with.

Yes, agree - and makes a change from Thijs' yodelling on "Hocus Pocus", which is the usual Focus tune of choice in this sort of programme!

I wouldn't be so sure about that - have you seen the "Keith Moon" thread? Every chance the programme producer was at the same public school as the Olympics 'organisers' ...

Yep hard to believe, I'm sure a bit more research would have gone into a program like this. No doubt we will have The Damned and co jumping around to a background of Anarchy in the UK or God Save The Queen.

Almost reason enough to make this a "must watch", LOL

Didn't like yesterday's 3rd of 4 episodes ... totally disagreed with almost everything. I was happy then/loving/listening/buying/doing/working in industry, despite the ladybirds/hot hot 1976. Still happy now, despite the wet wet.

I worked in a car factory for 30+ years, the unions domination in the 70's was funny when you were part of it but looking back how embarrassing and pathetic.
