Just spotted this in RT. With recent posts about Linda Thompson singing Brian Patten and the Liverpool Scene remembered this should be fun.

I did enjoy this program a lot. Brought back many memories.

It's on iPlayer until Thursday if you missed it.

I've just watched it again to check if it really was Davy Graham I noticed in the background at 36:47. It was. A clip from Cain's Film perhaps????

I haven't seen any serious reviews or discussion about the program anywhere.
I learned that it had really all started much earlier than I was aware of. Several years before the main publishers got involved.

I'd hoped to hear a bit more about their interests in 50s/60s modern jazz, but the program concentrated understandably more on the rock'n'roll pop links.
